We are very happy to be part of the prestigious Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro in Bogotá, with our duo Inténtalo Carito with my brother Nicolás. We will be playing on the 24, 25, 26 and 27 of March at the new theatre “La Trama de Gaitán”, and afterwards we will stay at the theatre performing every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until April 16.
Very happy to announce that the album in which we worked so hard last year, -Sofia Ribeiro’s “Mar Sonoro”- was finally released in March 2016. The album, which I produced and arranged, was recorded in New York with Sofia’s band: Sofia on vocals, myself on the piano, Petros Klampanis (Greece) on the upright bass and Macelo Woloski (Argentina) on the percussion; plus some really incredible guests- Maeve Gilchrist (Scotland) on harp, Arooj Aftab (Pakistan) on vocals, Itai Kriss (Israel) on flute and a fine string section of 8 amazing players in New York who played in three tracks. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jeremy Loucas, and Andy LaViolette directed and edited all the videos.
I am very proud of this beautiful album; it was a true privilege to work with this group of people, and its a honor to have it among my collection of personal works. You can buy the Cd clicking here!
I am super happy and proud to share with you that Marta Gómez latest album “Este instante”, which I produced, arranged, directed and recorded the piano and background vocals, received two Latin Grammy nominations! It is really great to see that there is also a chance for independent productions to find a place in this platform traditionally dominated by the major labels. Congratulations to Marta and all the musicians and engineers involved in this beautiful album!!!
We will have a live concert in Bogotá presenting our show “Afta Cuándo?”. You can get your tickets online here:

I am super happy to soon be starting five weeks of touring with some of the projects that I love the most: Marta Gómez group, Sofia Ribeiro group and Banda Magda. Starting with a tour in Colombia with Marta presenting the Cd “Este Instante”, which I produced and arranged, followed by a short European tour with Sofia Ribeiro, and ending in New York with another concert with Sofia and two more with Banda Magda. Amazing music, amazing musicians, amazing venues!
A romantic bolero, which lyrics can be understood either as if we were talking about a heart broken love, or a kanker soar!
“Bola de chumbo” is a song that we wrote with Sofia for our album “Ar” (2012). We recorded this video in April 2014 in New York City, and I edited the video myself with help of a few tutorials. We are very happy that we will be back on tour with these amazing musicians during the month of November in Europe!
I hope you enjoy it!
From May 2 to June 7 we will be presenting our show “Afta Cuando” at Casa Ensamble, every Thursday, Friday and Saturdays. This is a completely new experience for both of us, but we are very happy to be doing this and we are working with an amazing team that is making the whole show look great. If you are around please come, you have 18 opportunities!
Honored to have two compositions of mine in the program that the great Paquito D’Rivera will perform with his group and a big band at the prestigious Carnegie Hall (New York) on May 16th!
