Madrid es Negro (Madrid is Black) is a festival of American black music (Soul), organized by the magazine Enlace Funky and Maderfaker club. This year the homenageado is James Brown, through concerts in different venues in Madrid. A quote from the most interesting for lovers of music in general and the Soul / Funky in particular.
James Brown was a big fan of Latin music in general, and therefore has been influenced by this genre, and has influenced many of its artists. Jorge Duran is a good knowledge of the secrets of these rhythms and for the occasion with his jelly group will take Latin Mambo rhythms with a Brown’s key at El Sol.
El Sol is one of the legendary concert halls of Madrid, with a long history since 1979, when he started the “Movida Madrileña”. It has promoted hundreds of concerts of different styles, especially pop and rock, as well as having served as stage for recording video clips and diverse films.
