With this peculiar title (Don’t let the dogs escape) Kasba Music presents the debut disk from the group Xazzar, a group composed of students from the ESMUC (Superior School of Music of Catalonia), a young septet winner of the Sona 9 (the most important musical contest in Catalonia) competition in 2006.
The CD introduces 11 themes and a bonus track where they mix oblique melodies initially inspired by Klezmer and folk music with varied rhythms that run from jazz to swing, trotting through to the Charleston and the French Chanson, constituting an original proposal that we could classify as a modern orchestra from the mid-20th Century. The tunes sung in Catalan, Spanish and French are all original compositions by the group characterized by upbeat love themes appropriate for dancing and celebrations.
The album was mixed and recorded in the Music Lan studios in Figueres, Girona, under the production of Jordi Cristau (who has worked with groups like Fito & Fitipaldis, Lluis Llach or Manolo Garcia) and the members of Xazzar.
On the disk we encounter varied musicians and friends collaborating, like: Helena Cases singer of Conxita on tambourine, Jordi Cristau with the chorus, and Francis from Dumbala Canalla on trumpet, among others.
We invite you to enjoy the rhythm and spirit of this young group: Xazzar!
