It’s been pretty difficult to keep up with Spanish producer, musician and composer Raül Refree over the last few years: his hugely acclaimed work with Sílvio Pérez Cruz (Granada), Rosalía (Los Ángeles) and Lina (Lina_Raül Refree), with whom he appeared in Ljubljana in 2021, has helped to propel these young artists onto the world stage; and he’s also found time to produce two brilliant solo albums for Ljubljana-based Glitterbeat Records.


Now it’s the turn of Maria Mazzotta, a singer already well into a third decade of startling creativity, as solo artist and a member of the legendary Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. Their collaboration was premiered in Barcelona in December, in a wonderful setting of voice, guitar and keyboards. It wasn’t a melding of different cultures as much as a coming-together of kindred spirits: the Queen of Puglia and the King of Barcelona. We’re looking forward to a repeat at this year’s Druga Godba.
