The tower of Babel?

This mellow album is the work of locally based musicians Alejandro Blasi and Diego Blanco

Some time ago I was happily introduced to Alejandro Blasi, a locally based musician here in Mallorca who collaborates regularly with well known artist, Donovan. He and his fellow musician Diego Blanco, form the duo Babel, and Blue Dance is their new album. It is a lyrical mix of sonorous and arty music using both modern and ancient instruments such as electric guitar, bamboo marimba, hopi flute and mouth harp.

As it happens, Donovan has a home here on Mallorca and contributed a poem which he reads in the song, The Wind. All the mellow and relaxing songs are available on CD or online The duo also hold concerts on the island and are always keen to welcome new residents and visitors to their music.
