Singer and guitar player JOrdi Batiste, A new portrait for the "MUSICIANS" series / by Toni Ricart

Jordi Batiste is surely one of the active artists with a resume of vertigo. Often music historians have placed him as one of the fathers of pop-rock in Catalan after being part of IA & Batiste or, before, Els 3 Tambors. However, his name came to the fore when along with Enrique Herrera founded the group Màquina!, which was erected in the spanish musical forefront as a new way of pop/rock that broke molds and clichés. Solo he has released several albums, the most recent Nova, with whom he has returned to psychedelia and the most fresh, daring and vital rock'n roll.
