Carles Benavent / bass guitar
Jordi Bonell / guitar

Our fruitful partnership with Instituto Cervantes has revealed yet another breathtaking virtuoso yet to grace UK shores: this time, a bass guitarist whose performance credentials include Miles Davis, Paco de Lucía and Chick Corea. Carles’ breathtaking facility and lyrical expression forges a fluid lead voice on an instrument originally intended for other roles; in partnership with his guitarist, the dialogue is fiery with flamenco and fusion undertones.


Presented in association with Instituto Cervantes Manchester
