Providing a light hearted latin vibe and vocal, Victor Salavatti is perfectly complimented by Sol Homar as a fantastic double bill. Close your eyes and drift away as they soothe the soul and clear the mind.
Victor Salvatti is a singer, guitarist, composer and interpreter from Brazil. He began his musical career in 1997 at the age of 15 when he discovered the guitar. Autodidact, always curious, observing what was happening in the streets of Sao Paulo, his hometown, he began to investigate the traditional Brazilian as well as the afro-Brazilian rhythms. After a musical career in Brazil leading projects as folk music and modern music, he decides in 2004 to go to Barcelona with the purpose of making his work known in Europe as also to spread his music, culture and essence to the whole world. There he gets in contact with various cultures and with the world music and he begins to mix folk rhythms with funk and reggae ones. Being in contact with different cultures and people from all over the world made him see that we are all equal, that we are all human beings regardless of where we are born and what we believe in, capable of the impossible if we stay united in a world without borders. In 2009 he launched the Maxi single “Vida Boa”, a mini-disc with four songs, beginning his recording career. He is currently launching his new album “Nossa Terra” (Our Earth), a title that refers to the planet, to humanity and the union of people, a union that Victor shows through a completely acoustic album based on his percussive guitar, the percussions of the world and in his maturity as a singer, composer and arranger.
Sol Homar is a duo born in Barcelona in the spring of 2004. Emerging from meetings and good times with friends, Sun Homar – a Uruguayan on percussion and vocals – and Mel seme – playing Cuban guitar and providing vocals – began performing with the show, feeling that at any time and place this music embraces the soul and body of the listener. Sol Homar grew up in Uruguay around carnival drums and the charm of roots music, with dances, songs, and festivals. Soon he began traveling and learnt the cultural richness of Latin America. At sixteen he began studying percussion in Buenos Aires and from there searched among the different rhythms, cultures, teachers and schools.
This is another free gig at Paraigua. The venue is always packed and the sound at the back isn”t as good as at the front so arrive early to get a good place. Drinks are quite expensive at 4 euros a beer but entrance is free and there is always a lively and friendly crowd.
THE LOWDOWN are Funky / Blues / Jazz / Swing that play regularly in Barcelona. Playing mainly cover versions with a few originals they are an easy band to dance to or just relax and enjoy a beer with.
