The Barcelona-based group offers a unique journey into sound, combining jazz with various Latin American rhythms.
Javier Colina is considered one of the best contrabassists in Europe. As his musical career flourished, Colina saw himself performing with musicians consecrated in the world of jazz such as George Cables, John Hicks, Louie Bellson, Gary Bartz, Jimmy Owens, Tete Montoliu, and many others. Outside the jazz panorama, he has collaborated with Flamenco musicians like Tomatito and Carmen Linares.

A native of Madrid, Serrano is considered one of the world's most versatile and talented masters of the harmonica, displaying an amazing technique that spans many different musical genres, from classical to jazz, tango and Flamenco.
They are joined by Marc Miralta on drums and Mariano DÍaz on piano.
