Neocalorrismo & Rumba'n'roll

Director Nando Caballero
Spain / 78 min. / 2018 / Spanish and Catalan


Rumbero with a rocker heart, José "Pantanito" looks back on a 15- years career and explains a paya vision of rumba, made in Barcelona but infused with Caño Roto, which spawned the unclassifiable concept of "neocalorismo".

 

Coinciding with a 15th anniversary concert at his beloved Heliogàbal venue, José Antonio Bejarano "Pantanito" reviews his existential and musical journey until he coined the term "neocalorismo”. From that broken Spanish guitar found in the trash in a town in Córdoba to the discovery of the fusion of flamenco and rock thanks to the "Omega" of

Lagartija Nick and Morente, and the discovery, in Barcelona, ?? of Peret,

the Catalan rumba and the "fan" popularized by El Gato Pérez as the "Caño Roto sound", the rumba that emerged the Madrid suburbs in the 70s (read Chichos, Chunguitos, Chorbos and Grecas). And how all that made him put down the electric guitar and use all his tenacity to find a cool and brash sound of urban rumba that blew a hole in our music scene, regardless of indie trends and the "mestizo" scene. Besides his own testimony and that of his musicians, journalists like José Manuel Gómez "Gufi", Nando Cruz, César Prieto, Alicia Rodríguez and Jordi Turtós contribute personal visions and historical context to neocalorismo, a label assimilated at the time with modernity, and then follow its subterranean path, in a delirious dance through the daily reality of those who can’t make ends meet.
