It's been twenty years since Blai Casals yen Manu Sabaté they met at the Camps for Young Folk Performers of the Pyrenees, in Arsèguel, and on the last day they asked each other: "Do you want to form a group with me?". Twenty years later, both musicians have decided to take advantage of this ephemeris to do a little retrospect of the journey they have lived so far. First alone, then with La Mata Negra (accompanied by a rhythmic base of bass, electric guitar and drums); later alone again, but with Blai adding the hype and the talks (as the old accordionists of the Pyrenees used to do) and, finally, with Morena, the trio of tradipatchanga who form with Heura Gaya and La gravityt de Coulomb, stable trio they form with the flabiolaire Pau Benítez. The album we present, ics ics, celebrates the joy of living and the traveling companions known and lived so far. Congratulations and to twenty more years of music together!

Blai Casals: diatonic and symmetrical accordion, electronic accordion synthesizer, bass drum and talks
