Ires is a half-American, half-Spanish artist who transforms her personal experiences into songs. She defines her music as pop with jazz, soul and blues influences, as in recent times she has begun to study these styles in more depth. The musicians who accompany her also come from these scenes. The concert will consist mainly of Ires’ own songs, but will also include some versions of her headline artists: Lizzy McAlpine and Tom Mish, among others.22h Sofree
Yasmeen Quintana vocals, Sylvain Couesmes aka Freemachinist machines/MPC, Julio Nahinim Carbonell Jenks tenor sax, Alan Sousa percussion.
Sofree is the name of a Franco-Spanish duo living in Barcelona. The project is the result of the personal chemistry and close musical cooperation between Yasmeen Quintana (vocals and arrangements) and Freemachinist (production and artistic direction). With a captivating atmosphere and multifaceted staging, Sofree creates an explosion of energy on stage. His is a fusion between the warm groove of soul and the sharp beatmaking of hip-hop in a tropical style accentuated in every song.
