More than your usual party, Fiesta de mucho bailar para todas las edades is a space of encounter enlivened by some of the best DJs in this country and music connoisseurs.
The selection is dedicated to “pre-rock ‘n’ roll” music, with Los Hermanos Pizarro at the helm, true archaeologists of the forgotten music of slate records which, however, have inspired several generations of Spaniards to dance. At the Fiesta de mucho bailar para todas las edades – where Paco Clavel and Luz Divina, Diego Manrique, and Íñigo Munster will also spin records – the audience will hear foxtrot, swing, jazz, country and calypso, as well as revue and pasodoble and Latin, African and Caribbean music. They are all an invitation to dance alongside your grandmother and your neighbour, to watch your father dance a pasodoble and learn cumbia from the 1950s with your Colombian friends.
For almost three years, Los Hermanos Pizarro have led a programme on Radio 3 devoted exclusively to playing slate records, in a programme that is definitely not for people burdened with nostalgia, which broadcasts the great forgotten hits that brighten listeners’ afternoon.
Diego A. Manrique was the factotum of the programme El Ambigú on Radio 3, one of the most respect programmes on the line-up for decades because of his sensibility and capacity to mix styles without sacrificing quality. Plus, he also writes in several specialised publications, as well as for the newspaper El País.
Paco Clavel is one of the icons in Spanish pop culture. He has been digging into our popular culture since the late 1970s, leading several radio programmes, publishing records, making his own productions and curating several disciplines. He will DJ in Cibeles with his colleague on the Radio 3 programme El Guirigay, Luz Divina.
Íñigo Munster is one of the founders of the legendary national underground label Munster. Respected all over the world, his skill has multiplied since he founded the label Vampisoul, where he has reissued the best in Latin American and African music from the 1960s and 1970s.
