We manage and distribute music and performing arts. In the music field, we are specialized in genuine jazz projects of any kind. Nowadays we manage: Young pianist Xavi Torres, one of the most outstanding and promising musicians coming from Spain, leads his own trio since 2010 together with Joan Terol (drums) and Vic Moliner (doublebass). They won the “Dutch Jazz Competition 2016”, the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award and the “Best Group of 2015” by the Catalan Jazz musicians assoc. They have released two albums: Skyline and Unknown Past. Clara Peya is a hyperactive artist considered one of the more inspiring pianists and composers that has appeared in the Spanish musical scene in the recent times. She has already released seven albums under her name and she has composed the music for multiple pieces of theater, dance and circus touring throughout Europe and South America.

Anthus SINGER, COMPOSER AND BAND LEADER

A singer and a composer, Anthus is “one of the best male jazz voices in our country”, according to numerous critics. Born in Sicily, formed in Ireland, discovered in Catalonia, Anthus has been performing in different countries and with musicians of different backgrounds, ranging from free jazz to Mediterranean folk. In 2017, Anthus releases Calidoscòpic, in which he fuses contemporary jazz & Mediterranean sounds. Calidoscòpic is soon nominated for “Best jazz album of the year” and Anthus for “Best Newcomer Artist” at the “Enderrock Music Awards”. Anthus uses not just lyrics in different languages, but also a remarkable scat singing which proves him to be “The Crooner of the Mediterranean Jazz”, a singer whose lifetime mission is revealing his jazz soul.
