Felix Slim: 1930's Blues, Ragtime, Swing and other Herbs
One of Spain's leading blues musicians, born in the North African enclave of Ceuta-Cadiz and based nowadays in Brooklyn, New York, Felix Slim is an entirely self-taught multi-instrumentalist and specializes in blues, ragtime and swing from the 1920s to 1940s. Influenced by the Delta, Piedmont and Texas sound, Slim uses slide guitar, fingerpicking and standard and open tunings, and has played his dynamic versions of blues classics and original songs with echoes of flamenco, rebetiko and jazz manouche on seven albums and in over fourteen countries worldwide. Expertly swapping between the harmonica and kazoo along with his unique singing voice complement each other, creating a fresh and distinctive yet true vintage sound. His ability to connect and involve the audience has developed a compelling live show, which combines the humor and warmth of his native Andalusia with the gritty reality of country blues.
