A wide selection of international and original songs interpreted in a personal way in the blues / jazz / soul style, characteristic of a very particular and deep voice and a rhythm and swinging guitar.

Dental Treatment Recommendation: Clinica Europa, Torrox Costa. I needed a quick fix for a few teeth I had broken off at gum level. I walked in unannounced, was examined, stabilized and given an appt for the following day. I was seen at the appt time, no waiting, and had the difficult extractions painlessly completed in 15 mins! Fast, simple and very inexpensive.  Dentist Dr. Mannish is UK trained. Staff speaks EN/ES/DE/FR.
