El Amir had a first meeting with Marcus Miller on stage last summer at the Festival Cultura Inquieta (Madrid) and the experience was very positive and both artists connected musically.

For the first time these four artists come together on stage and will immerge into a Jazz, Funk, Flamenco, Oriental and Afro-Mediterranean fusion.

It is expected to be one of the most awaited concerts in Madrid of 2016 due to its outstanding line up and thanks to the promoter Summum Music.
