The beloved Argentinian-Swedish indie-folk star José González returns to Tallinn’s Alexela Concert Hall on 11 June 2022. after winning the hearts of the Estonian audiences with his performances in Tallinn.
González has packed out distinguished venues from Tallinn to Sydney and London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall. He’s earned platinum records in the UK and his Swedish homeland and has got some billion streams under his belt since he first arrived in 2003.
José’s long-awaited fourth album, Local Valley, provides a welcome reminder of his understated appeal and his ability to communicate discreetly, a quality illustrated by the uncommonly effective use of his music during The Last Dance, Netflix’s documentary about Michael Jordan. Beginning with the sun-dappled ‘El Invento’, the first song he’s recorded in Spanish (the native tongue of his Argentinian heritage), it engages in his signature melodic and hypnotism. It’s also full of his trademark, bittersweet pastoralism. Local Valley, José acknowledges, “is similar to my other solo albums, a mixture of classic folk singer-songwriting and songs with influences from Latin America and Africa.”
