Over the last two decades, Luis Gimenez Amoros has been performing internationally, both as a solo artist and with multiple artists from the World Music industry. Luis fuses Spanish musical styles with different types of African (Gnawa, Saharawi, Malian blues, soukous, Afro-beat or chimurenga) and Cuban music. Luis will perform with his new Hispano/South African band formed by Asher Gamedze (drums) and Eugene Ackerman (bass).
Luis has performed and composed with a variety of artists from the World Music industry, including Mariem Hassan (Western Sahara). Together they composed the album ‘El Aaiun egdat’ which was awarded number one during April-June in the World Music Charts Europe. Luis has released several solo albums under the name of his two main bands (Dimeiwe and Demachena).
“An exciting and unique blend of African rythms and Latin flavours, truly something special.”
