The live performance by The Staples Jr. Singers is one of the few opportunities to witness a sample of spiritual and incantatory music at sala Apolo: a true family reunion of gospel soul "made in" Mississippi.
In 1975 they released their first and only album, "When Do We Get Paid". Nothing could be closer to reality, as it was the only question on their minds in the early days, due to their racial status.
Now, the New York label Luaka Bop, which has also worked with William Onyeabor, Floating Points or Alice Coltrane, has re-released this old treasure, whose original copy is more than desired by collectors.
More than forty years and three generations later, the original members of The Staples Jr. Singers who are still on the circuit join Caprichos de Apolo the 26th of January to perform live the tracks from that first remastered album.
Their name is a tribute to the vocal group The Staple Singers and, like them, they caused quite a sensation locally in Aberdeen in the mid-70s.
So young, strange and misunderstood, they broke with the soul gospel tradition to make their mark with groove.
Think of that musician that seems impossible to you that someday will come to play in Barcelona. Or think of that cult artist who doesn’t fit into any programming cycle. Or think about that special show of a large artist in small format. Well, all of this is Caprichos de Apolo.See More
