Music is feeling and passion – and the young musicians from Azuleo mix these properties with the fresh air of the four cardinal points. Their musical background has flamenco and jazz influences, arabic sounds and spanish folklore. Romanticism, tradition and innovation: this international ensemble shines with his own light, given by virtuous guitar, full expressive singing, amazing saxophone sounds, electrifying bass lines and temperamental percussion beats.
I got to know Abel Sanchez and Jonas Ferhenberg two years ago when I filmed them in a small cafe in Berlin. They already worked on an impressive music based on Flamenco and adding on the talent of other musicians. Two years later, we got together again with this project, Azuleo. That night, we were supposed to film in an empty theatre which happened to so empty that we didn’t manage to reachthe owner on the phone! Long story short: we ended to film in my house in Kreuzberg which actually was the first time for me. I got the help of my old friend the musician Antoine Villoutreix who actually revealed himself great cameraman, especially being the first he was olding a camera!
