Hiromi duo featuring Edmar Castaneda
Hiromi, a phenomenal ambidextrous performer developes a brilliant music. Both fascinating and disturbing, showered with prizes and rewards, capable of playing Mozart or Rachmaninov backwards, she also knows how to distance herself from her exceptional gift and express herself with seriousness. Her dexterity at the piano and the liveliness which characterises her playing produce a simply explosive fusion.
At her side, Edmar Castañeda... In the space of just a few years he has become one of the most influential reformists in the art of harp-playing, bringing a shade of infinite modernity to his instrument, with plenty of Latin and African sounds. Born in Bogotá in 1978, and now one of the most original artists among those on the current New York scene, he has won over America and the rest of the planet through his revolutionary mastery of this instrument, still (too) rarely associated with jazz. Hidden behind the timid smile of this Colombian prodigy there lies the euphoria of genius, the greatness of a visionary, the madness of a revolutionary.
