1.José, tell us a little about your experience in the world of music…
From 1999 to 2011, I ran ‘Discos Mardigras!’ in Valencia. Among other activities, I organized concerts of international artists of black music in different clubs of Valencia and as a DJ in many clubs including events throughout Spain. From 2014 to 2017, I had a space for the record shop inside the ‘Cracovia Bar’. In 2017, I opened ‘Splendini Bar i Discos’ with Jordi Belenguer.

You can find Afro-American music of the last 6 decades; Jazz, Soul, Blues, R & B, Hip-Hop, Funk, Brazil and Latin grooves. Also a little pop and rock.
