Los Aurora and Max Villavecchia thrilled the audience with incendiary music and dancing, reports Azernews.

The musicians performed at the first Baku International Piano Festival organized with the support of the Ministry of Culture. The host of the evening was Tofig Hasansoy.

Los Aurora is a flamenco-jazz group that is revolutionizing the national and international music scene with a bold and personal proposal. A breath of fresh air in flamenco, a genre that has lost its fear of merging with other aesthetics.

The pianist Max Villaveccia with the cantaor (flamenco singer) Pere Martínez, Javi Garrabella on bass and Joan Carles Mari on drums, accompanied by Pol Jiménez and Miranda Alfonso on dance, embarked on a musical adventure through songs most popular flamenco songs that go beyond the most traditional sounds to immerse themselves in other genres.

Their sound starts from flamenco and moves towards jazz, the two styles that make up the DNA of this young group, moving away from the more classic sound of the compositions from which they draw their inspiration.

Founded by Emeritus Artist Shahin Novrasli, the first Baku International Piano Festival will run until May 27.
