The Barcelona Big Latin Band, the London Community Gospel Choir and the Messengers present a bold new project: classic and contemporary Gospel songs arranged to transform the Gospel roots into a new sound where Hallelujahs and Amens create a powerful harmony to the rhythm of the “Son”, “Mambo” and “Descarga”.
The idea of bringing together Great Britain’s premier Gospel choir, the Messengers and Spain’s Barcelona Big Latin Band, birthed a fusion made in heaven, a majestic explosion of rhythm, colours and sound. Bazil Meade and Ramon Escalé, the originators of this masterpiece and pioneers in their own musical worlds, have created an exciting synergy, adapting Gospel classics to Latin rhythms and the Big Band sound. Thanks to the talent of world-class Jazz musicians, the skill of extraordinary Gospel voices and the innovative and vibrant arrangements of Meade and Escalé, this spectacular project brings freshness to Gospel choral and Latin big band music, raising the bar and radiating magic, energy and fun.
