Blanco White started as the solo project of Londoner Josh Edwards in 2014. After studying guitar in Cádiz (Spain), and later the Andean instrument the charango in Sucre (Bolivia), Edwards’ aim was to begin bringing together elements of Andalusian and Latin American music alongside influences closer to home.
Blanco White will release his long-awaited debut album On the Other Side on June 5th 2020 throught Yucatan Records.
Blanco White about Papillon: ‘Papillon is a song inspired by Henri Charrière’s book of the same name. It was a very important book to a friend of mine, and it left a similar impact on me. Most of the story takes place surrounded by water, so I wanted the song to have a shimmering and rippling feel to it.’
