Marcel Vallès presents a set of his own compositions born from his experiences during a stay in Brazil, which became a journey of musical immersion and a turning point in his career.
With the guitar as the protagonist, the artist shares with the audience the personal vision of what has become his host country, while navigating different styles of Brazilian popular music with touches of jazz and blues.

Benguelê is an ensemble that delves into Brazilian instrumental music, particularly in choro. The “choro” or “chorinho” is a musical genre precursor of the “samba carioca”, which was born in the late 1800s in Rio de Janeiro, fusing European dances with Afro-Brazilian rhythms.
Benguelê is the meeting of European and Brazilian musicians playing the traditional instruments of the choro: Guitars (7 and 6 strings), pandeiro and flute.
Rémi Meurice: flute Marcel Vallès: guitar, Rocco Papìa: 7 strings guitar, guitarra de 7 cuerdas, Jonas Santana: pandeiro
