About the Nominee

Two prodigies of Catalan jazz, the sprightly voice of Magalí Sare and Manel Fortià’s multilingual double bass takes the listener on unexpected voyages across continents. Their second album, reTORNAR departs from the duo’s expressive twosome now enriched with percussion, the sine qua non of Ibero-American heritage they so eloquently capture. Flutes, background vocals and bass ukulele add to the sound spectrum of the band, making Magalí Sare’s voice shine with even greater intensity, giving character to this 21st century Ibero-American folklore. Rewriting the sea voyages of slaves, explorers and merchants, Sare and Fortià offer pure music of ingenious composition and refreshing concurrence.
