Jorge travels to Bolivar Film Studios – Caracas / Venezuela for a 2 days musical experimentation & recordings, accompanied by some of the heaviest players in town, including no other than Mr Spiteri himself, J Pulia Liendo (Ex Pianist of Dimension Latina), and the emblematic Afro-Latin Drum ensemble: Grupo Madera, (between others) for the making of the tunes: “San Juan & Electropical”.
