Sangria Jam

Sangria Jam could be described as ‘jazz falling in love with flamenco’, but as our bassist/ producer Juan Soto says in the interview below, ‘we just play what we feel.’ For me there is no greater feeling than singing and playing my own songs with the enormous musical talents that make up this band. I invite you to explore Sangria Jam’s ‘ingredients’ below… this isn’t a fusion so much as it is as spontaneous musical expression of our lives here in Andalucia, Spain, and what happens when we play together. A CD is set for release in 2015….
