Swingapur

Biography

Swingapur was born in the Barcelona-based school of contemporary music Taller de Músics, and it’s formed by students of the Superior Grade of this institution, united by their aim of spreading the good vibes and the special chemistry of many selfless rehearsals and performances in the well-known Wednesdays’ jam sessions at Jazzsí, the school’s club. The band grew up and matured until it became a stable project in 2010, as a result of their weekly performances at Cafè de l’Or in Gràcia (Barcelona), reaching the point in which they can be considered a strong and steady formation.

They have played in important pubs like: Harlem Jazz club or Jazzsí club. Swingapur’s repertoire is composed of a wide range of jazz standards with styles like swing, bebop or bossa, a few touches of hard bop and the unpretentious objective of disseminating the message of jazz and making it accessible to everyone.
