There are no new roads, rather an endless search that may correspond to everyone. Jazz in Spain today is a musical style that takes its inspiration from its popular repertoire; it reviews flamenco, reworks the content of its unique take on rock and pop, and finally, it endeavours to connect with the rest of the world, as do renovators everywhere.
There’s no way you can understand the popular phenomenon that is Patáx if you don’t know these specific circumstances, even less so if you aren’t aware of how its members are particularly keen on the hot and exciting American salsa scene. With all this, the band is – we are quoting a sentence from their website verbatim – turning the live music scene in Spain (and outside the country as well) upside down.
With their eyes set on such powerful names as Weather Report or Chick Corea’s Elektric Band, Patáx is a multi-racial rhythmic machine that gives new wings to fusion music and takes it to a completely different level, where the communion between flamenco and Afro-Cuban folklore is the key ingredient in what is a magical recipe. With more than 21 million visits on YouTube and a tour that is taking them around the globe, they are one of Europe’s most promising fusion projects.
