¿HOW WAS THE PROJECT CONCEIVED?
The CD-book Flor & Rolf arose from a new challenge in the lives of Mr. Furia and Professor Manso: fatherhood. When they both – first Salvador Rey and then Alex Llovet – , had been parents for a while, they began to realise they had a hard time finding good music for kids, especially in Spanish. And after much contem- plation, they started working on some songs that ended up shaping the story of Flor & Rolf. During the process they understood that, besides giving the story some good music, they also could apply the educational values they were trying to transmit to their daughters. For this reason, Flor & Rolf has become not only a beautiful musical story, but also a CELEBRATION OF DIFFERENCE.
