Andrea Motis “Loopholes”


Sunday, September 25 at 6pm
Plaça del Priorat

Loopholes, the new self-released project by Andrea Motis moves away from her comfort zone, to enter a sound universe that is part of her musical background, where funk, electric jazz and neo-soul take a lot of leadership. Motis explains that, in addition to creating a characteristic sound that serves as the album’s common thread, he has also drawn on many of his influences: from Robert Glasper’s loops to the Californian sound of Jack Johnson, passing through Hados Waller and his “Honeysuckle Rose”. Blues is also present, or even Latin American folklore, embodied in her personal version of the cumbia “El Pescador”, by José Barros.

Throughout her career, Andrea Motis has collaborated with legendary artists such as Quincy Jones, Omara Portuondo, Milton Nascimento, Gil Goldstein, the WDR Big Band, Scott Hamilton and Yo-Yo Ma, with whom she performed the duet El cant dels Ocells included in the last album of the remarkable cellist. She has perform concerts in some of the most representative jazz venues on the planet, such as the Tokyo Jazz Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, Jazz in Vienna and Blue Note Japan, among others.
