A master of beautifully complex timing, lush colors and dynamic spirit
When Colombian harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda plays, it’s hard to believe only one man and not a trio of harpists is performing. Castañeda’s technique is remarkable – comprising lead, rhythm, and bass lines all at once and is equaled only by his soulful improvisations.
Edmar Castañeda attacks the harp in a mesmerising, groundbreaking fashion. As Hendrix wrestled the electric guitar to extract startling new sounds and expression, charismatic Castañeda does the same with his harp. With extraordinary virtuosity, his frenetic, physical performances mesh euphoric Latin American rhythms with the improvised freedom of jazz.
