The artist from Gran Canaria Germán López,John Naya from Senegal , Luis Morera (Taburiente) from La Palma or the Cuban Toto Noriega (Más que Son) have coincided many times on stage and have made out of the sea that separated them geographically and physically, a common framework for the understanding of their music and a space for common creation, sharing rhythms and melodies to make their music a global framework.
