Concert: Javier Ruibal
 
Concert: Javier Ruibal
New York, New York, USA
Early June
Description
Born in Cadiz, Andalusia, the heterodox and self-trained Javier Ruibal began his career in 1987 and since then has given numerous concerts in and outside Spain, both solo and with such music greats as Pablo Milanes, Joaquin Sabina, Carmen París and Carlos Cano. His songs reference Spanish poetry, especially the poets of the Generation of 27, such as Rafael Alberti and Federico Garcia Lorca. He has also composed for other artists, including Ana Belén, Martirio, Javier Krahe, Pasión Vega and Mónica Molina, and has created music for film and for different audiovisual productions. His contribution to the arts earned him the prestigious Medal of Arts from the Andalusian Regional Government. Ruibal sings, above all, to carnal love, but like a modern King Midas, everything he touches turns to beauty.- El Païs Singing songwritings best-kept secret. Genuine, popular, intelligent and seductive.- La Razón To call his songs love songs is to deny their originality.- The Independent Javier Ruibal possesses an exquisite and rigorous desire to integrate with the social history alongside which he lives. His songs are at once beautiful and responsible, intimate and participatory, personal and universal. I believe that his enduring power of conviction depends, above all, on this dual sensibility, human and artistic, which is, in the end, an unforgettable lesson. - José Manuel Caballero Bonald, Spanish novelist, lecturer and poet *** Javier Ruibal Online: Website YouTube channel Facebook page **** Alwans music program is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council.
