What this whole thing is about
FLOR DE CANELA IS RELEASING ITS FIRST ALBUM!!!
We have taken our time, that’s true… but now’s the time to announce that we are bringing our music to fruition in an EP format with five songs! You know what we say in Spanish: lo bueno, si breve, dos veces bueno. Keep it simple and make it good.
We are launching a crowdfunding campaign as a way to finance our album through the contributions of many people. It will be running for 40 days, in which all of you can do your bit by buying the album (and many other things) in advance, and as soon as it’s ready you will receive it at home :)
First of all, we want to thank you all also in advance, simply for reading this. It means the world to us.
We have made a selection of five songs from our repertoire to carefully bring them together in this first album.
We are going through this process of production together with Juanma Latorre, the amazing guitarist and composer of the amazing Vetusta Morla. Thanks to his magic we are preparing every song in such a way that we can offer a different and original proposal of our music, while sticking to that diversity of styles that is our characteristic feature. Variety is the spice of life.
We are incredibly lucky to count on very special collaborations: Juanma Latorre himself playing the guitar, Patrick Duke playing percussion and other artists whose names we will reveal during the campaign.
Flor de Canela is a project that was born at the ESMUC, the higher education institution of Music in Catalunya. This was the place where our friendship developed, and our initial idea was to perform some songs in the summer of 2017. Soon afterwards, after some concerts and with the support of our followers, the project became a part of something bigger and turned into a collective experience that needed to expand and have its own identity.
What we do is pop-fusion, with influences from Latin-American folklore and jazz. The band started touring around the country in the summer of 2007 with arrangements of widely-known songs.

Little by little we started incorporating our own songs. Up until now we have given more than 60 concerts, and now we want to offer a compilation of our music in an album, so that you can listen to us in privacy, at home or wherever you want to.
