With their original album, “Bartzeloona,” this young, Mediterrean band launched their first national tour. Their second CD, “Potiner,” reached international acclaim and was interpreted live on stages across most of Europe. Now, with the publication of their third album, “Plou plom (musiqueta que enamora)” (Lead Rain—a little love music), CHEB BALOWSKI opens fresh territory, with great expectations, a new European promotion and a world tour (Morroco, Finland, Jordan, Belgium, Algeria, Germany, Netherlands,…).
The first half of the new CD, “Plou plom,” (Lead Rain), reflects the times in which we live, while the second half ”musiqueta que enamora,” (a little love music) acts as a counterweight to the bad vibes we face each day. It is, without a doubt, 100% Balowski. We hear both a fluid continuity with past work and new advances, demonstrated in 13 themes charged with a beat that comfortably mixes traditional rhythms and melodies with Mediterranean flavored rock.
Participating in the recording of the newest CD, along with Iñigo Muguruza, who produced their original CD and collaborated on their second album, are: David B., who played on “Potiner” too, Minsa (from BKC and Desechos), and the duet formed by Fermin Muguruza and Sorkun. “Plou plom” is produced by Stephane Carteaux (who also produced the group´s second CD) and David B.
CHEB BALOWSKI: Yacine (vocals), Isabel (vocals), Marc (bass), Santi (guitar), Jordi Marfà (violin), Dani (accordion and keyboards), Tito (trompet) and Arnau (percussion). Drummer, Jordi Herreros, is present for the first time on the new album, and Sisu, joins the group on tour, replacing saxophonist, Marcel Pie, whose departure coincided with the publication of the new CD.
