Dorantes’ piano is free, versatile and lively. With his first album Orobroy, a National Critic’s Award winner, he took flamenco to new horizons. With his second album Sur, also a National Critic’s Award winner, he drew closer to orquestral music and his virtous fingers took the piano to a whole new level. Sin Muros, his third album, edited by Universal Music, show us a wise Dorantes with full knowledge that music is an explosion of sanity, a momentary treaty with divinity and the only right answer to certain questions. In his debut in Jazz San Javier, in a quarted format and accompanied by guest artist Esperanza Fernández, one the best voices in new flamenco, Dorantes will prove, with no doubt, why is he one of the most prestigious international Spaniard musician.

A living legend of the bossa nova, singer, composer and fabulous guitarist, Toquinho is one of the most beloved artists in Jazz San Javier, thanks to his two previous performances in which his music shined as bright as his friendliness and charisma with the public. We admire Toquinho's facet as a composer, which took off with the great worldwide success, "Que Maravilla", composed alongside Jorge Ben. We also admire his collaborations with other artists like Chico Buarque, Francis Hime, Maria Creuza or Sadao Watanabe and, of course, the great Vinicius de Moraes, who marked a milestone in the history of the bossa nova. But above all we admire his absolute dominion of the guitar, an instrument which he has consummately mastered.
