new musician portrait: Magalí Datzira / by Toni Ricart


I shot Magalí’s portrait this morning at her Barcelona apartment, while outside in the street a heavy rain was falling.
Magalí is a wonderful jazz singer and double bass player.
That’s what jazz musician and conductor Joan Chamorro says about her:
It is impossible to remain indifferent whilst listening to Magalí singing. Her voice is special, uniquely beautiful, and combines sweetness and character in a balanced way, instinctively, I would say. [...] She has a very particular way of approaching tempo and melodies, reading them in a special way and confronting a score as if compass bars did not exist”
