“Mandarin Swing” is an instrumental group that recovers the dance repertoire of the 30 ‘and 40’. It was born in 2015 on the initiative of two of its members, also balboa dancers, in the face of the need to find live music suitable for dancing this style.

Dj. Jesús Races (ESP)

DJ at Balboa events, both local, in Madrid, and international: Sitges Balboa Beach, Madrid in Pulse, Valencia Balboa Exchange.

 For Balboa I prefer the sound of the classic bands of Swing like Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Lionel Hampton or Duke Ellington, this is what predominates in my repertoire. But depending on the type of event, the time and energy of the track, I tend to evolve towards more modern sounds like Jonathan Stout or Professor Cunningham. Although I always keep in mind the roots of New Orleans with people like Palmeto Bug Stompers or Gentlement & Gangsters and even the music of Garage Balboa like that of the Dizzy Birds.

 Current Balboa projects in which I am involved, Big South School, “Madrid in Pulse – Madrid Balboa Festival”, “The Balboa Camp Factory”, WeBal – Balboa teachers collective in Madrid.
