Mano de Dios
Jackson Scott has played guitar since he could stand upright. His passion for flamenco and gypsy music was inspired by his upbringing near Seville and travels through India. In 2007 he met Cuban bass player Jimmy Martinez and Roberto Ares, who had recently returned from studying percussion in Brazil. Together they formed 'Mano de Dios' - a pun on Maradona's famous excuse – joined later by Sky Murphy, playing guitar and trombone. The result is a rugged blend of flamenco, punk, blues, rumba and samba. 


They have been described as 'The Spanish Pogues' and the 'Indie Gypsy Kings'. In 2008, Mano recorded their first EP with Queen producer, Josh Macrae. Picked up later, by legendary producer Youth, their new recordings see them moving in a more 'gypsy punk' direction. Eclectic by nature, Mano have played everywhere from The Secret Garden Party and Glastonbury to the Guggenheim museum. They have supported Roxy Music, The Peth, Shaggy and The Clash's Mick Jones.
