Princes of Time is one of the most exciting groups on the Spanish music scene. This international band, formed by six of Barcelona's best known jazz and funk musicians and fronted by the explosive singer/rapper Danna Leese has created a distinctive and powerful live sound and dynamic stage show.
The "Princes of Time" live show combines original tunes from their two CDs with dynamic versions of 70's funk and soul classics originally performed by artists such as Chakka Kahn, Tower of Power, Ohio Players, Bill Withers, Average White Band etc.
Created in 1993, the group became an immediate sensation on the Barcelona club scene. After releasing it's first CD in 1995 on Mas i Mas Records, the group began to play in clubs and festivals all over Spain. In 2000, the group released it's second CD "Just in Time" on Fresh Sound Records.
How could we describe the group's music? It's a combination of two of the important currents of modern Afroamerican music: hiphop in its more melodic tendency and new soul. Because of each group member's experience in the world of jazz improvisation and a deep knowledge of the funk tradition, the result is an original blend of modern music with roots.
