TICKETS >>> Vivaticket

Even though, Motis is only 21-years-old, she displays a mature musicality beyond her years. That’s because she began playing the trumpet at age seven; three years later she began studying jazz at the Municipal School of Music of Sant Andreu under Chamorro, who soon after recruited her for his band while she was still a teenager.

While at the school, she was also a member of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band for nine years with which she recorded eight discs and played with such acclaimed musicians as trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, saxophonist Jesse Davis, clarinetist Bobby Gordon, and saxophonist Dick Oatts, among others. In addition to trumpet, Motis plays alto saxophone. But it was with Chamorro’s band that she began singing. “The trumpet will always be my first instrument,” Motis says when asked if she likes being a singer or an instrumentalist the most. “Playing the trumpet is like mediating; it’s such a part of my life. But I never want to choose just one side of my artistic sides because I love doing them all.”

Gabriel Royal

It takes a while for Gabriel Royal’s musical style to strike you. His songs build up slowly, the arrangements between his singing and cello playing pulling you in and… you are hooked. You might think that's too long of a time to pay attention to music nowadays, then think about how it took Gabriel five years busking on the New York city subway to finally get noticed and have his first album recorded.
