Together, they are the base of this group that feeds its creativity with the musicians they meet during their travels. Most of the musical encounters and collaborations with foreign musicians were done through the street. This band likes to busk. The contact with the audience and the magical moments caused by this kind of performanceis one of the foundations of the group. In this way, Los Swingones can adapt to any form of event by including musicians from the local Jazz scene or Lindy Hop or tap dancers.

During their first European tour in 2018, the group filmed several of these collaborations with musicians from different countries. You can find these videos on their Youtube channel.

Charlie Christian, Benny Goodman, Billy Holliday, Lester Young, Compay segundo, Omara Portuondo, Arcadio Hidalgo, Tereso Vega, Ella Fitzgerald, Django Reinhardt, Pablo Beltran Ruiz, Nina Simone, Renato Carosone, Tin Tan and Luis Alcaráz are some of the artists and influences you’ll be able to experiment with Los Swingones.

Juntos son la base de esta banda que desarrolla su creatividad  con los músicos que conocen en el camino. Muchos de los invitados y encuentros musicales se hicieron por el medio de presentaciones espontaneas ya que a Los swingones les encantan las tocadas callejeras. El contacto directo con el público y los momentos mágicos que provoca este tipo de “performance» son parte de la escencia de la banda. Así el ensamble se puede adaptar a cualquier evento incluyendo a músicos locales por ejemplo al saxofón, trompeta, trombón o piano, además de  bailarines de Tap y Lindy Hop. Durante su primera gira europea en 2018, filmaron colaboraciones con jazzistas de diferentes países. Los videos se pueden encontrar en su canal de youtube.

Ensemble, ils forment la base de ce groupe qui alimente sa créativité avec les musiciens qu’ils croisent durant leurs voyages.

Le contact avec le public et les moments magiques provoqués par ce genre de performance est une des fondations du groupe. De cette manière, Los Swingones peuvent s’adapter à toute forme d’événements en incluant des musiciens de la scène Jazz locale ou encore des danseurs de Lindy Hop ou de claquettes.
