Those are the influences that softly appear in Edu Lopez's voice and music. From the warmth and sensuality of a croones to the virtuosity of scatting, it is all mixed in a cocktail that also includes Latin-American blood and old tango.
Edu has not only spent more that a decade to singing jazzz standards, bolero and bossa-nova, but he has also satisfied his need for composing and sogwriting.
