Flyer de gira de presentaciónHi everybody!

 I’m on the last step of my project.

 A show that toured in Madrid, Barcelona and New York!

A project with a crew of 33 musicians, a real “dream team” (Big Band, strings section and a sextet), conducted by the great Joan Albert Amargós.

Shearing stage with Pedro Ruy-Blas, and, as a special guest, Carme Canela. We have the  C.D. and D.V.D. mixes already finished.

At that moment, we are doing the pack’s (C.D. & D.V.D.) graphic design to make the manufacturing and sell it.

 It is for this reason that I do a Crowdfunding, from the platform

                             QUE NO PARE LA MÚSICA!

                            (DO NOT STOP THE MUSIC!)

Together with you and your support, we can achieve it.  


I hope that the rewards I’d prepared will encourage you to cooperate.




I want to present you a musical project, born in 2008, when I personally meet Pedro Ruy-Blas, a great musician and singer, from Madrid. The best mail voice on our music scene.

The idea of shearing stage and experiences was materialized in a show that is, without doubt, an irrefutable sign of the extraordinary musical quality in our country.

The project became a real show in 2009. On stage, 33 musicians (13 metals, 14 strings, 1 sextet), conducted by one of our best professionals, Mr.Joan Albert Amargós.

Fort he songs, 11 arranjers who brought their personalities and their good work in every theme. And a very especial guest and excellent singer, Carme Canela.

We premiered first in Madrid (20 of May), Teatro Español. Next concert in Barcelona (15 of June), El Palau de La Música, where we recorded and filmed live. Finally, all the team flew to New York where we performed at the Zankel Hall, Carnegie Hall (28 of June)

In El Palau de La Música, we had the great honour to have with us, on stage, Carles Benavent, great among the greats!

This project is/rests now in Madrid, in the hands of José Dalama (Dalamix recording studios) and mine aswell.

Economic problems and the many dificulties (the big crisis!) have not possible for this work to have enough resourses to see the light.

And I wish to make the final this 2015.

It’s for this reason that I get in touch with all of you.

Your contribution will make possible to make this Project on an album, a precious pack of C.D. and D.V.D. and also, at last, to be in tstores. I sincerery think that it’s worth!.

Your collaboration will also be used to make the post-production: the mixings, the audio and video coordination, the C.D./D.V.D.’s graphic design and the manufacturing of Thousand packs for the market.

Aside from my most sincere and infinite gratitude, I offer you a bounche of rewards that hope that will encourage you to collaborate and be part of this project and, of course,  DO NOT STOP THE MUSIC!!

 “Entitled as “Sueño Inmaterial” (Intangible Dream) by the generous and adventurous of the proposal, Laura Simó and Pedro Ruy-Blas have patented a formula of a magistral duet…. The date, last Wednesday. Neither more, nor less than 33 musicians, brass, strings, conducted by Joan Albert Amargós, and clothing an exquisite repertoire that began with high level swing, to lead progressively to bossa nova and Pedro Ruy-Blas’ songs, switching between the soloist and coral, and duets performings……”
