Sevilla-based Francisco Contreras has been known for throroughly unique live events, which don’t really suit standard definitions of a “concert” or a “performance”. But his studio recordings are as unique.
“Voces del Extremo” is his latest one. Collecting a decade of experiences, politically and socially engaged and poetic at the same time, as musically reach as you can imagine – and thus ever more than his five previous efforts escaping easy categories.
Produced by Daniel Alonso (Pony Bravo), the album is modern and forward-thinking, but its bias brings an old-school atmosphere of making musical statements that matter, even if some listeners will feel hurt.
