A night of rhythm, dance and elegance. The one proposed by the American Nile Rodgers, architect of the best disco music that he was, together with Bernard Edwards at the head of Chic, producer of some of the best records by Madonna, David Bowie or Diana Ross and an exceptional collaborator in the creative renaissance of Daft Punk, and the one also proposed by Takuya Kuroda, the Japanese trumpeter and producer whose creative profile is the closest thing we have to a 21st century Dizzy Gillespie.
Chic, the duo formed by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards, redefined and sublimated dance music between the late seventies and early eighties, thanks to a series of sensational albums, in which funk and disco music met: who doesn't remember hits like "Good Times" or "Le Freak"? But that was only the beginning of Rodgers' career as a total musician: he produced Sister Sledge's We Are Family (1979), Diana Ross' Diana (1980), David Bowie's Let's Dance (1983) and Madonna's Like a Virgin (1984), albums that defined an entire era. His guitar playing created a school. He collaborated with Daft Punk on their highly celebrated Random Access Memories (2013). And he kept Chic's flame alive with albums like Chic-Ism (1992) or It's About Time (2019), with a spectacular list of guests: Bruno Mars, Debbie Harry, Pharrell Williams, Janelle Monae, Haim, Disclosure or David Guetta.
The Japanese Takuya Kuroda starts from jazz, obviously, but his silky and distinguished formula has always been characterized by combining soul, funk, afrobeat and some other spices in the same discourse. Well-trained in the New York scene, having collaborated with José James, Akoya Afrobeat or Badder (DJ Premier's band) and having been part of record labels with such pedigree as Concord or Blue Note, the Japanese lands at Noches del Botánico to present his latest and seventh album, Midnight Crisp (2022), which confirms the hybrid of his infallible alchemy in six new tracks.
At Noches del Botánico we believe that there is no age to enjoy culture, that is why all minors can access the venue regardless of their age. They must access with their corresponding ticket and accompanied by their father, mother or legal guardian.
If the age of the minor is less than 16 years old, he/she must always be accompanied by his/her father, mother or legal guardian.
