Carles Benavent Trío
Carles Benavent (electric bass), Roger Mas (piano), Aleix Tobías (percussion)
Barcelona’s Carles Benavent plays a key role in the creation of today’s flamenco. His catalogue of colleagues includes the musical giants Paco de Lucía, Chick Corea, Quincy Jones, Miles Davis, Joan Manuel Serrat and Camarón.
Benavent, together with his Barcelona-type electric bass, will be accompanied on stage by two musicians of the highest repute: Roger Mas on the piano and Aleix Tobías on percussion.
Roger Mas, from Alicante, is a pianist, composer and professor at Musikene and at Barcelona’s Taller de Músics. He has collaborated with artists such as Jo Krause, Dee Jay Foster, Marc Ayza, Javier Vercher, Voro García, Raynald Colom, Silvia Pérez Cruz, Santi de la Rubia, Llibert Fortuny, Dani Pérez, Laia Cagigal, David Mengual, Giulia Valle, Horacio Fumero, Bob Sands and Joe Magnarelli.
Aleix Tobías, a percussionist initially trained at the Badalona Escola de Música, has furthered his musical knowledge by spending long periods of time in West Africa and Turkey. A member of the groups Tactequeté and Coetus since their creation, he has also worked with myriad artists particularly featuring Silvia Pérez Cruz, Refree, Kepa Junkera, Marina Rossell, Cia. Elèctrica Dharma, Eliseo Parra and La Fura dels Baus.
