Txarango rendered us speechless with the performance they offered at Festival Cruïlla 2017.
We’ve got hold of them for two days at the Poble Espanyol for the spring edition of Cruïlla de Primavera, but naturally, we couldn’t let them get away that easily. Txarango are the perfect embodiment of the spirit of the festival: their name comes from a traditional Andean string instrument, but their songs see cheery pop dancing with sun-soaked reggae, in tune with an animated and positive universe which is inspired by the fantasies of the circus and that has expanded its radius of action to a multitude of artistic and solidarity projects.
In one of their most quintessential songs, Txarango declare themselves proud street musicians. And so grew their reputation for playing live, giving progressively bigger and bigger concerts throughout Catalonia, Spain and elsewhere in Europe. They have made intimate connections with thousands of fans, making each show a “mestizo fiesta”. In 2017, the group will release their third album, which will affirm their status as a musical force to be reckoned with.
