VICENTE NAVARRO Vicente Navarro is a musician and actor from Madrid, whose music mixes Spanish and Latin American folklore with urban music and electronic. He studied in Rodolfo Halffter’s conservatory, in Mósteles, where he started his career in popular music, being one of the finalists in Young Creators’ Contest of Madrid Community, in 2007. In 2010 he created the duet ‘Pájaro’ with his friend Xoel Yáñez, with whom he published the EP ‘Tiempo vs Dinero’. During 2018 Vicente recorded his first album ‘Casi Tierra’ with producer Eduardo Figueroa. It was edited by El Tragaluz on June 7, 2019, achieving a great welcome by the audience and specialized media. He was also nominated to Best World Music and Fusion’s Album in MIN Awards, which took him to perform at Prado Museum, in FIAS 2020’s programming. ‘Casi Tierra’ reflects on the belonging needs, something essential in the human being, using the land and folklore as the main scene. Since that research, each of the ten songs that define the album speaks about sexism, Civil War, new masculinity or homosexual love. Even though Vicente’s voice and the spanish guitar take us to the past, the electronic arrangements give ‘Casi Tierra’ a contemporary sound, inspired in urban music, dancehall or Spanish an Latin American author’s song from the 60s and 70s. Each of the songs in the album have been written by Vicente Navarro and produced by Eduardo Figueroa. The album has been recorded at Estudio A Sonido, mixed by Carlos Hernández and mastering by Caco Refojo (PKO Studios).
