Blanco White started as the solo project of Londoner Josh Edwards in 2014. After studying guitar in Cádiz (Spain), and later the Andean instrument the charango in Sucre (Bolivia), Edwards’ aim was to begin bringing together elements of Andalusian and Latin American music alongside influences closer to home. In early 2016 Blanco White released ‘The Wind Rose’ via Yucatan Records, a self-produced debut EP. A second EP ‘Colder Heavens’ was later recorded in the Autumn, this time with producer Ian Grimble (Bear’s Den, Matt Corby, Daughter). His latest track “Nocturne” was released summer 2018. His Cadiz tip?
“It’s best just to follow your nose and explore all the maze-like streets on foot to get a feel for the city, stopping at cafes along the way. Make sure you then get up high to see the Cádiz skyline. Torre Tavira and the Cathedral tower have amazing panoramas. Definitely hang out at one of the city’s beaches until sunset, followed by late dinner and a flamenco performance.”
