Time to dance! Franco Bianco presents “Jorge Drexler Remixes LIVE! Tour” that will take him over 7 European cities during September, introducing the album with danceable versions of the Oscar-winning Uruguayan songwriter. On the 9th of September, he will be performing LIVE! at Basing House in London.
In this respect, Franco Bianco (half of Benedetti & Bianco alongside Nacho) speaks as follows: "With Nacho, we are totally in love with this project that took us 3 years of intense twists and turns, where we got to take to dance Jorge Drexler electronically, along with two artists we admire, such as Jesper Dahlback from Sweden and the Canadian Mike Shannon.” Now is the time for touring Europe, but above all, it's time to have fun!
"Jorge Drexler Remixes" is a project born out of permanent concern of its creators to musicalize the dance floor, without complexes or gender distinctions. As you will see, Orthodoxy does not fit in these two South American, but consistency, the intimate harmony with the spirit of Drexler. Franco is the indicated for the task of touring the old continent, to present this record (on Vinyl, Digital and CD format) which will find him very busy during the month of September, in seven different European cities. Ladies and Gentlemen... it's time to dance!
