Roster Movistar. More (music) fusion than ever.

Next Friday 28th February we have a must-see visit to Abaixadors10 in Barcelona: workshops, talks and live music hosted by Roster Movistar, Movistar’s cultural sponsorship project. Urfabrique, EJ Marais, Cor Blanc, Doble Pletina and Le Nais will be the artists involved.

From some years ago, Movistar is no longer a simple telecommunications operator. Like any current start-up, the multinational company has known how to pivot and seek out new business models that allowed it to enter fully into the growing national music scene.

Roster Movistar is a cultural sponsorship project whose mission is to promote the musical talent of both emerging and established artists through educational sessions, live shows and support in communication, promotion and artistic creation.

The place selected is Abaixadors10, the bunker from where most of the podcasts of Radio Primavera Sound are broadcast. A space with modernist touches in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic neighborhood.

Frankie Pizá, creative director at Primavera Sound and Vampire Studio, will moderate the following talks:

Urfabrique, an indie house duet from Barcelona, will give a workshop on the running of analogic synthesizers. Cor Blanc will make us play with the sounds of apps and webs to create songs. We will follow with a music production lesson by EJ Marais. Closing the divulgative part, Doble Pletina and Le Nais will talk about Cinema, feminism and art direction.

The session will end with a B2B performance between the two artists EJ Marais and Le Nais.

Just 9 months have passed since Fernando Rascón, director of the Roster Movistar, announced at the launching of the project that “the initiative opens a door to those bands from the Mediterranean that are eager to carry out their musical project. We want to give them that first opportunity”.

And said and done. The first artists supported since summer 2019 are about to celebrate the year at Roster in full form by giving performances at the Movistar Centers around Spain.
