As jazz legend Miles Davis once said of drummer Christian Burchard and his group, Embryo, "That German hippy group (Embryo) where Mal (Waldron) used to play. They are doing interesting things. You know man? They are creative, good musicians, just playing good shit."
Thirty-five years after Davis's comments were made, and on the 40th anniversary of their first album, Opal (1970), the German band, famous for the fusion of world music and jazz rock, appear in Barcelona.
They will be performing at various city venues:
Friday 26th, 9.30pm at Heliogàbal
Saturday 27th, 10pm at Espai Jove BOCANORD (C/ Agudells 37-45; www.bocanord.org)
Sunday 28th, 8pm at Espai Jove LA FONTANA (C/ Gran de Gràcia 190)
