9 Nov – Canaries7 – “Womad: Una propuesta multicolor bendecida por la crític”. MIROCA PARIS “¿Quién es?
Nació en una familia de músicos prósperos. El Paris, con siete años, comenzó a tocar la batería y a los trece
Miroca exploró el canto, la guitarra y la percusión. Impulsado por los sonidos a su alrededor, fundó su primera
banda en 1994, tamborileando y cantando.
¿Cómo suena?
El caboverdiano ha sido un músico reclutado en más de una ocasión por Cesaria Évora o Sara Tavares para sus
discos. Una carta de presentación más que suficiente.”

20 Dec – Mixed World Music by Ronald Veerman
Translation: “Miroca ripened his talent in the past 20 years. D’alma is unique because of the very relaxed
sound, the characteristics of an artist who doesn’t have to prove himself. I jumped up at the exciting percussion
instrumentation of the first track Nhe Simpronia and Joana Joaninha, plus the funky take on Guilhermina.”
