Jenny and the Mexicats, whose name is a nod to the colloquial form of calling the madrileños (cats), joining the origin of two of their musicians (Mexico), mix rhythms of jazz, rockabilly, folk, flamenco, reggae, are veracruzano, country or cumbia.
What impresses is their unique personality – it is practically inimitable. Their themes jump from one to another in a style that is seemingly and impossibly natural. Now you are in the Square of Garibaldi, now in a tablao flamenco, and suddenly, on a beach in Jamaica.
A musical journey that shows us that there are no boundaries when it comes to music. There are also no labels, no prejudices, no snobbishness.
