About the artists:

EL GUINCHOBorn Pablo Díaz-Reixa in the Canary Islands, the Spanish-owned archipelago off the coast of Northwestern Africa, El Guincho found indie blog fame in early 2008, shortly after the previous December's release of his album Alegranza, which coincided nicely with his North American debut performance in Austin, Texas, at the SXSW festival. Read more.

EXTRAPERLO is a Barcelona-based band that debuted in 2009 from the same scene that saw El Guincho spread worldwide. In fact, half of its members tour with  him.  Influenced  by bands like Aztec Camera, Dominant Legs, Orange Juice, Prefab Stroub and Roxy Music they released their sophomore album ‘Delírio Específico’ back in 2012 (produced by El Guincho) to a welcoming blogosphere; especially in Mexico, Chile, Belgium and Australia. Concerts all around Spain followed (Primavera Sound, FIB, Arenal Sound, among others) and further more into Mexico (Festival Nrmal) and Estonia (Schilling Festival).
Considered by national press the future of homegrown music they return now with their latest album‘Chill Aquí’, which as the name suggest takes their sophisti-pop sound to new chillin’ horizons. Still in search of the perfect pop song, idyllic and captivating, their music aspires to overstep genres with each album’s own lyrical universe and the unwavering quest for beauty that has always driven this Mediterranean pop act.
¨ We meant to make an album with melodies that resonate like groovy mantras, luring the listener into the album’s chill ¨
On their third album Extraperlo explores their soft-rock side against their passion for italian romantic pop, achieving this from their own peculiar identity. This is an album which echoes for its soundscapes among foreign productions, like Jam City’s flanger bathed ‘Dream a Garden’ and Blood Orange’s groovy guitar riffs and sensuous halls, seductive spaces that ‘Chill Aquí’ conveys across its 10 tracks.

NOIA (Barcelona/New York) is the solo project of singer/producer Gisela Fulla. Gisela was born and raised in Barcelona by a family of activists. She moved to NY and began working as a sound designer/mixer and music composer for film. She also started producing music with traces of Tropicalia, leftfield R&B, traditional Spanish melodies and experimental sound design under the name of NOIA, which means “girl” in catalan. She sings in Spanish, English and Catalan. Her debut EP “Hàbits¨ came out last November via Cascine Records (US) and Buen Dia Records (MEX).

TURNBULL GREEN (Brooklyn, US) is the indie project established circa 2010 by multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter & visual artist Ian Newman.


Spain Fresh is an organization promoting culture related to Spain in NYC through events, programs and pop-ups with the aim of breaking stereotypes and building bridges between Spain and the US.

The event is sponsored by Mezcales de Leyenda and Peloton de la Muerte.
