Joan Viñals is well-respected in Catalunya for his mastery of Gypsy Jazz (he was co-founder of popular quintet 5deswing, inspired by the jazz of Django Reinhardt). However, his work with other instruments like the ukulele led him to create a more intimate, audacious project. As a result, Iluminata was conceived in the summer of 2010. From that point, Joan found the means for expressing himself in his own language. Sung in Catalan, Joan gives his very special touch to this beautiful collection of 8 songs….
