Presents ‘The Magic Sound of the Violin’
Èlia Bastida violin, Joan Chamorro double bass, Josep Traver guitar, Carla Motis guitar, Guillermo Soler drums
“Two years after the release of the CD Joan Chamorro presenta a Èlia Bastida, on which Bastida appeared showing her different facets as a performer (violinist as main instrument, vocalist and tenor sax player), we now present The Magic Sound of the Violin.
Although it is impossible ignore the musicality, strength and intensity of Grappelli (her initial inspiration), together with the contribution of bebop, hard bop and other music, Èlia’s search for a language to incorporate all these aspects has finally led her on to her own musical path. Rich in subtlety, open-minded and shunning all labels, her approach is, above all, exciting as she manages to coax all the wonderful possibilities from ‘the magic sound of the violin’”.
