AFTER THE CONTEST...
María Pascual and Andrea de Blas, the two winners of the Young Talents Contest recording their EPK at the ESMUVA music school.
Synopsis: The Girls in The Band tells the poignant untold stories of female instrumentalists in the world of Jazz and Big Band, as well as their fascinating innovative journeys, from the late 20s to the present. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism as well as the limited opportunities they were offered for decades. However, they continue today in the musical world, in order to inspire and raise their talents in a field that rarely welcomed them.
