Chicuelo-Marco Mezquida

Chicuelo-Marco Mezquida is a duo of two Spanish musicians, with a flamenco guitar and a jazz piano
to create an unusual musical approach. The two top-class musicians are complemented by the percussionist Paco de Mode. Chicuelo-Mesquida were a big highlight of the Jazzahead 2017 and gave a fantastic, emotional concert at the Philharmonie in Cologne.

Goya award winner, brilliant soloist- Juan Gómez “Chicuelo” is one of the most famous and most innovative guitarist of the flamenco scene.

Marco Mezquida: an absolute, overwhelming musician with a unique style. As a solo artist, he´s already a well-known musician in his hometown.

On their first album Conexión, these two virtuosos celebrate their mutual admiration and absolute devotion to music without any genre boundaries.

Press
Chicuelo and Marco Mezquida surpass the known patterns of Flamenco-Jazz with their album Conexión. They are not afraid of pop harmonies, or balladic euphonies. Another highlight is that the heavy instrumentation, so typical of fusion, is completely absent: only percussion enriches the duet. Melodic cadences overtake Andalusian fire, yet keeping the flame of virtuosity.
Jazz Thing
The boundaries between Flamenco and Jazz are not precisely unexplored territories; however, there are still treasures to be found. Musicians converge with one another with curiosity; in such a way that something entirely new is born from that encounter.
