In 2017, some of the founding members of the mythical Barcelonian band Los Fulanos decided to take it one step further. They set up Boogalizer with the idea of creating more great dance music drawing on the influence of all those Nuyoricanswho mixed so effectively the grooves and spirit of Salsa and Soul, to come up with Boogaloo.
The band’s career already includes three key jazz festivals:
- Boogaloo Explosion! – a Blackcelona production, December 2018. A night of músic dedicated to Ray Barretto, with special guests.
- Festival de Jazz de Igualada, August 2018
- Festival de Jazz de Terrassa, Marzo 2018
With their first cd Ara Mateix!, Boogalizer present four originals and a cover of Togetherby the cuban percussionist Mongo Santamaria.
