"fango" (2020)

Let's say I'm talking about blues in Spain. The first name I should refer to is Mingo Balaguer. We would be talking about the pioneer, the first harmonica player, the first to imagine a blues band, it will soon be forty years since the best-written and most prolific career of blues music in Spanish lands. He started with the mythical Caledonia Blues Band in the mid-eighties, and since then his figure has been at the forefront leading different bands, non-stop performing, building the path along which the musicians who have succeeded him have circulated. As a musician his technique with the harmonica is infinite, blown from hours listening to Little Walter, Harmonica Smith, William Clarke or Paul Butterfield, he has created his own style as personal as it is identifiable that has allowed him to play classic Chicago Blues, genuine Jump Blues or restored Mississippi Country Blues. "Cookin 'At Home" is his latest album, now as Mingo Balaguer's Blueshadow and behind it are Balaguer himself and two guitarists, Kid Carlos and Pablo Sanpa, also from Seville, with their own careers and both with a consolidated reputation in the country's blues scene. This is an album that should have an impact beyond its borders, it's an international level work without a doubt.
