Adolfo Nunez: Jurel

  • ©, , Jurel

Artist Statement:


    Jurel is based on flamenco music which can be very virtuosic, combining singing, guitar, clapping, dancing and “jaleos” (shouting to encourage dancers and guitar performers). The whole result is a rhythmically precise and coherent mix of sounds and music with strong drive and expressivity. I have extrapolated a new type of flamenco based on its own elements. The title comes from a phrase used to encourage performers: “Vamos ya, jurel” (go ahead, jurel). Jurel was produced at the LIEM-CDMC Laboratory (Madrid) and the GMEB (Bourges).
