I was passing by the MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya) museum in Barcelona by chance after lunch at the Centre d’ Equitació Poni Club Catalunya, to discover a live jazz dancing event with concert by Saphie Wells & The Swing Cats. I arrived at the end but managed to capture some moments. As a photographer, it was a challenge, (which I enjoy as it awakens the senses) as the light was very minimal and i only had my manual Nikon 100mm 2.8 lens with me.
A little about Saphie Wells: Born in Lima-Peru. Peruvian singer born in house musicians. She began her musical studies in 2004 in Peru in the school of Jorge Maduro. Later, in 2007 she moved to Barcelona where she continued her studies. She has also participated in festivals like Rototom Sunsplash (2010/2012), the Festival de Jazz de Andorra (Jazz Hivern), Pyrenees Jazz Festival, various venues in Barcelona and scenarios Peru. With as a sweet, warm voice, great rhythmic domain. Your African American descent and the influence of music and rhythms of her country naturally led the Jazz style giving a personal touch and original.
