JENNY AND THE MEXICATS

A jazz kit played with sticks and mano, an upright bass tattooed with comely women, jaunty Caribbean-influenced acoustic guitar and a beautiful blonde siren with, yes, a trumpet. Do you wanna dance yet? Jenny will lure you in with her bluesy no nonsense voice. She doesn’t want to work, just to dance. This relationship is torture. It’s just plain better in Buenos Aires. And always her case is compelling, the music a perfect dance in and of itself, pieced together like good jazz—every player counts. Jenny’s from Britain but her Spanish is impeccable, the drummer is from Spain and the strings are from Mexico, but this group is original, like Manu Chau without the political agenda or a killer ska combo minus the kitsch. They are independents and the sum of their parts is from a land of heart and strong, quick rhythm.

“What they’ve done with their influences is create this really impressive mix of rockabilly, cumbia, jazz, flamenco, and they perform it in both English and in Spanish – very cool sound.” – Felix Contreras host of NPR’s Alt Latino on Jenny and the Mexicats

    Jenny and the Mexicats es una fusión de nacionalidades y personalidades, una banda que tiene una historia muy particular más que nada accidental. La banda tuvo sus inicios en Madrid como Pachucos y la princesa, en junio del 2008.

    Todo empezó cuando Icho (contrabajo) invita a Jenny a vivir en Madrid. Jenny con 20 años había llegado al lugar correcto. Icho llamó al mejor guitarrista que conocía, Pantera un guitarrista con técnica flamenca muy versátil, Icho y él habían tocado juntos muchos años en un grupo de rockabilly y en otro de punk en su ciudad natal en México.

    Pantera propuso a un colega que tocaba el cajón en lugar de batería, y así llegó David, un extraordinario cajón español, con el cual ya había compartido escenario en el mundo del flamenco.

    Así es como nace la pequeña aventura de una niña inglesa que emigra a España en busca de nuevos sonidos, y da lugar a Jenny and the Mexicats.

    Su primer concierto fue Wonderland, un pequeño festival que genera dinero para ayudar la investigación del cáncer en el Reino Unido, en agosto de 2008. Las raíces que este nuevo sonido cargaba, hicieron que Jenny empezara a componer mucho y así Jenny and the Mexicats empezaron a ensayar en el sitio donde todos se habían conocido… un tablao de flamenco.

    Una combinación musical que mezcla ritmos de jazz, rockabilly, folk, flamenco, reggae, son veracruzano, country y cumbia. Lo que le imprime a Jenny and the Mexicats una personalidad única, prácticamente inimitable.
