Bio - Javier Moreno

Born in Barcelona, from a Catalan mother and an Andalusian father, his Spanish rumba music is influenced by flamenco and Latin rhythms such as Bossa Nova, Cuban son and salsa, creating a fusion with a “summery” fiesta feeling. He studied Economics in Barcelona University but his passion was always music. He moved to Bristol in 2006, where soon established himself as an inspiring and respected musician.

Soon Bristol and the South West became too small for his ambitions, and moved to London in 2011 where he continues his work.
