Jairo Zavala is the real deal. Spain is the place he calls home: it's in his blood and is the inspiration for his incredible songwriting and guitar-playing. Jairo has taken on a number of guises over his career, including extensive global touring and recording with the kings of Americana, Calexico, and Spanish stars Amparanoia, as well as collaborating on his own work with the likes of Bernard Fanning from Powderfinger and the Godfather of afrobeat rhythms, Tony Allen. He's in Auckland for the first time with his own musical project, DePedro, backed by two multi-instrumentalists from Spain and Argentina, to unleash the charm and warmth of his work onto Auckland audiences.
Get set for a night of beautiful songs infused with the sounds of the street, extraordinary landscapes, 60s Cuban sounds, flamenco, American spirituals and cumbia; the sounds of DePedro.
