Impulse! Julia Cambra & Alexey León
“Un, dos. Un, dos, tres. Paro. Respiro. Escucho. Miro. Música que mueve, que propone
cambio. ¨ Don't pick up the cue, pick up the impulse¨!
Entre tiempos, sonido, movimiento y espacio sucede esta danza viva, abierta, en la que el impulso es la clave para seguir.”
El dúo formado por Julia Cambra en la danza y Alexey León con el saxo, flauta y voz
La duración puede ser de 10 a 50 minutos.
Pam Pam Dansa & Alexey León Quintet "UN2TRES4"
UN2TRES4 arrives at an artistically ideal moment, given that all the circumstances are given to be able to offer a show at the same time as the company's line of work has always been: to create a quality show for all types of audiences through always original projects.
"Un2Tres4" is a co-production that emerges from the urge to unite live music by internationally renowned artists and Pampamdansa dancers sharing the best of themselves, through compositions of various jazz styles, latin Jazz, Afro Cuban Rhythms and boleros and all this based on respect for tradition and looking for new contemporary languages.
The show includes a total of 26 artists (17 dancers and 9 musicians). Among the musicians is Alexey Leon Reyes, saxophonist, flutist, singer Cuban-Russian composer, and author of the album that appears in the show "Cuban Connection." Alexey Leon earned his master's degree in contemporary music at Berklee College of Music and a bachelor's degree in music at the Gnesin music academy in Moscow.
According to his own words, this is a "very melodic music based on the afro-Cuban rhythmic tradition, improvisation and the language of contemporary jazz." Each composition is inspired by an experience that has left a mark on the artist; people, moments, places.
Ivan Melón Lewis on the other hand is on the piano. He has been nominated several times in the Grammy Awards (and already has 3 of these awards) and is recognized as one of the most influential pianists of his generation. This Cuban of origin resides in Spain since 1998, and has collaborated with Spanish and European artists such as Joan Manuel Serrat, Joaquín Sabina, José Luis Perales, Sole Giménez, Charles Aznavour, Mariza and Buika.
Also outstanding is trumpeter Carlos Sarduy, one of the most brilliant and international Cuban musicians, collaborator of numerous jazz musicians such as David Murray, Chucho and Bebo Valdés, Esperanza Spalding and currently trumpet player of the group Ojos de Brujo. The trumpet of Sarduy can also be heard on recordings by artists of other styles such as Lenine, Ainhoa Arteta, Mariza or Concha Buika, and in films such as 'The skin that I live' by Pedro Almodóvar, or 'Chico y Rita' by Fernando Trueba.
Complete the quintet bassist Dany Noel, specialist in Cuban rhythms, and Frank Durand, Cuban drums and percussionist, resident in Toronto and Barcelona.
