Digo Vivir

October 2021


Recreating the existentialist period from Bilbao´s poet and his uprooted poetry "Digo vivir" is a work matured with conscience, faithful, respectful and very personal and for whose realization, Juanjo Navas has been joined by Curro Bermejo and Marco Borge on guitar, Darío Campos on percussion, Lidia de Lorenzo on dance and claps with Julen Biain, Jagoba Ormaetxea , Kike Mora on bass, Olaya Alcaraz, Mónica Muñoz and Isa Hernández on backing vocals. An extraordinary adaptation work of despite the complexity of verses whose metric was never intended for flamenco but nevertheless, Otxarkoaga's solves masterfully, either by Granaina in "En Castellano”, by Alegrías in “Yo soy aquel que no más decía” or by Tangos in "Digo vivir" where he moves away from orthodoxy to resume the tradition by Abandolados in " Vámonos al campo " and return to Tangos in "El Ciervo". Echoes from Morente in the soleá " En el principio " to travel to the joy of guajira and fandango in " Echar mis versos del alma " and "El emigrante" respectively. Juanjo Navas gives us halfway between tientos and tangos, " Por los puentes de Zamora", profiling with the toná " Mientras viva ", as a new reference within the purest and most respectful flamenco but without losing that restless and innovative look that some of its predecessors already had just like Camarón´s "La leyenda del tiempo" or even Enrique Morente in "Omega" joined by Bilbao rock band Sonic Trash in "A la inmensa mayoría”  and keeping in innovating on "Lagun Kantua" song in Basque.
