Voll-Damm Festival de Jazz de Barcelona – Halli Galli Quartet (Christoph Mallinger-Èlia Bastida-Marta Roma-Carla Motis)
Èlia Bastida violin and tenor sax, Christoph Mallinger guitar and percussions, Carla Motis guitar and, Marta Roma cello.
HalliGalli (which we could translate as “lively party”) is a quartet of multi-instrumentalists that turns into a small orchestra ready to seduce and entertain the audience with their proposal, which often includes humorous touches. They now present their first album, Live in Barcelona, in which they review with their musical joie de vivre an eclectic repertoire inspired by swing with theatrical and humorous ingredients. HalliGalli is Èlia Bastida, Christoph Mallinger, Carla Motis and Marta Roma, all of them regulars on our scene in very different contexts. HalliGalli are, indeed, a lively music-loving party.
