Seghabi 

Jhonny Seghabi explores the life of Russian painter Nicolás Ferdinandov and his experience when he moved to Venezuela in the XX century on the single "Caribe Gris" from his new EP. 

A young singer-songwriter, Seghabi was wholly dedicated to the making of his new solo EP, stating that he did not leave the house until he had finished the four-track production. The end result of his efforts is Lo Real Maravilloso de Nicolás Ferdinandov, which fuses alternative and folk influences with Caribbean sounds and rhythms to deliver a lesson on cultural history to the Venezuelan alternative scene. 

The production is a breakthrough for the industry, experimenting with music and history to create a well-regarded academic and musical reference. 

Now, Seghabi is preparing for his participation in the Capital Circuit of the Nuevas Bandas Festival, an event that has seen the birth of important projects such as Los Amigos Invisibles, Okills, <a href="/articles/news/international/7858107/venezuela-viniloversus-days-of-exile-english-album">Viniloversus</a>, Desorden Público and more. Festivalgoers can expect to see the lyrics of "Caribe Gris" played out on stage, immortalizing the life of one of the most well-known painters of the XX century.
