Hiromi & Edmar Castaneda - Live in Montreal Vinyl 2LP
Hiromi & Edmar Castaneda Live in Montreal Vinyl 2LP
Like all creative artists, Japanese pianist/composer Hiromi is keen on expanding her horizons and one such way was by touring with talented Colombian harpist Edmar Castenada. This 2LP-set from Telarc documents the dynamic duo's incredible performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival in June 2017 (they met at the festival the year prior) that needs to be heard to be believed.
The Observer notes: "Hiromi has brought a certain funkiness and energy to her fusion infused playing that is mirrored by Castaneda's use of the harp as both an elegant and percussive instrument. He rocks those strings, using his left hand to play bass on top of whatever melodic lines he plays. They delighted the crowd, even covering a tune that Hiromi has wanted to play live since she was a kid: the "Cantina Theme" from the original Star Wars film.
