Teatro Santa Ana
The event will take place on Sunday, August 8th, in San Miguel’s Teatro Santa Ana. This concert celebrates the yearly reunion held by these three musicians, who have come together to reflect on commonly shared questions that are profoundly artistic in their conception: how to capture y nature’s overflowing beauty, and how to translate that creative endeavor into harmoniously arranged sounds.
Leonardo Prakash (sitar), Santiago Bartolomé (trumpet and flugelhorn) and Fede Díaz (guitar and composition) have been -for some years now- collaborating on several musical projects, while continuing to develop as soloists. these artists reside in different parts of Latin America and are constantly performing in many international music festivals.
Prakash spends much of his time between the city of san luis de potosí (his hometown) and travelling the world, constantly touring on a variety of international stages so as to perfect his craft. bartolomé is from córdoba, argentina. the time he spends with the state’s orchestra is usually followed by a season of travelling with the purpose of completing previously undertaken musical and photographical projects. díaz is also from córdoba, argentina. after completing a specialty in guitar, díaz flew to the mexican caribbean where he´s been residing for over 10 years. since he left córdoba, díaz has been dedicated to refining his compositions and making these projects evolve into live performances that bring together collaborating artists from all around the world.
Their first single, alcondor is the result of a mexico-argentina collaboration.
alcondor is a musical show that was first conceived in the mexican caribbean at the beginning of the pandemic. it comprises a repertoire of collaborative and soloist works. the intrinsic relation between these artists and their origin stories, along with the experiences they have gathered along the way permeates on each of the musical performances with rhythmical influences that originate from: south america, the middle east, and some afro -cuban cultures. the rare acoustic interaction between the trumpet (sb), sitar (lp) and guitar (fd) produces a unique musical effect on each of the pieces. some of these works were the result of pure improvisation. other ones, with time, have matured enough to be written into symphonies.
the trio will embark on a short tour of mexico´s central valley that will culminate back in the mayan riviera. they will be on stage at private concerts and in theaters, while continuing to develop their own personal projects. this ensemble has come together with the shared purpose of continuing to refine its craft while producing new and original musical ideas. these ideas find their truest form of expression the moment they are shared on stage with you, and are thus propagated.
