Mon Casino Casamor (MCC) begin to sound strongly in the Barcelona scene. They are surprising for their diversity of styles, their mix of musical influences and the proximity of their lyrics. They manage to create intimate environments and at the same time, they can get you out of the chair to dance a party.
The story tells that Joan Casamor and Xavier Casino, two musicians and authors with musical trajectory in Barcelona, had a pending project and in 2012 they started to compose and make it a reality. After being a year and a half finding a sound and a language of its own, the drummer Mon Solsona joins the lineup, forming a power trio of proximity, with heat and groove in equal parts. More than 60 concerts by Catalonia and a first EP with the name of the group (MCC, 2014) are the baggage of the first times of the band. This trio format continues to present the show “Rumblues y Canciones de Piano Bar” for small and medium-sized rooms. This format combines the own compositions and also music poems by others (Miquel Martí i Pol, L.M. Panero, Jordi López, Shakespeare, etc.). They sing and musican in Castilian, Catalan and English, they even have passages in German or Amazigh language.
In 2017, from Barcelona and to the world, have been presenting “La Màgia dels Essers Imperfectes” – “The Magic of Imperfect Beings” – that only the beginning of the year has already exhausted the first edition with the presentation concert. Funk, rumba, polka-ska, afro, rock .. This EP is produced by themselves and mixed in the wonderful BSO Studios of Barcelona by Dani Espinet.
