EDMAR CASTAÑEDA DUO @ The Falcon | Sat Nov 28


"Listening to Castañeda combine intricate, bop-inspired finger-picking and independent, grooving bass lines rooted in the Afro-Cuban tradition with dramatic, percussive chords, it's easy to see why so many people are dazzled — his sound is orchestral in scope."
— All About Jazz


A superb vocalist, Andrea Tierra hails from Medellin, Colombia. She blends Latin American rhythms with jazz and her poetry to create one of a kind music. Her songs focus on the progressive, challenging injustices as they pertain to love, to life and to the Land
as her own name says..."Tierra".


"I was born to play the harp. It is a gift from God and like every gift from God, it has a purpose. The purpose of my music is to worship Him and bring his presence and unconditional love to people."

His CD, Live in Montreal, features the latest in an ever-growing history of thrilling partnerships, an utterly unique duo with the electrifying Japanese pianist Hiromi.

In addition to his acclaimed performing career as an instrumentalist, which includes Paquito D'Rivera's Carnegie Hall tribute, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, and the 10th annual World Harp Congress, Edmar has also performed with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, John Scofield, Marcus Miller, John Patitucci,
and Chico O'Farrill 's Afro-Cuban Jazz Big Band.

Since, Castaneda has taken New York and the world stage by storm with the sheer force of his virtuosic command of the harp, revolutionizing the way audiences and critics alike consider an instrument commonly relegated to the "unusual category".
