Xavi Sarrià, former singer and leader of mythical Valencian band Obrint Pas, came back in fall
2017 with the new and powerful solo album Amb l’esperança entre les dents
(literally “with hope between the teeth”). Before the breakup of Obrint Pas in May 2014, the band
had released seven albums and toured internationally for twenty years. Mixing ska, reggae and
hardcore with Valencian roots flavours of ‘dolçaina’ (a traditional type of flute with Tan instant
sound identification), Obrint Pas set the stage for the current mestizo, alternative and festive
sounds scene in Catalunya and Spain. They also normalized bands singing in the Catalan and
Valencian languages by engaging thousands of fans with anti-racist and anti-fascist lyrics. With
his solo stage act, Xavi Sarrià leads a powerful electric 9-piece band that perfectly blends the
maestro formula he developed with Obrint Pas, with the new musical horizons based on rock
patterns and some digital beats that can be found on the new album.
