4/4* review for Rachel’s album PENSAMIENTO in All About Jazz !

All of the compositions presented here are originals, her sense of melody and harmony layered upon a complex percussive foundation, portraying a musician of extraordinary caliber. It not only takes talent to accomplish a production like this, it also requires a lot of courage and confidence to pull it off. Rather than blending her jazz inclinations into provincial modes, she became immersed in the music, losing herself, becoming an intricate part of the experience.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS and HAPPY NEW YEAR !

We wish you all Happy Holidays — whatever religion, philosophy or owner’s manual you are following — whatever rocks your boat :

Hopefully you have some time off and spent it with your loved ones.

At the same time we are sending out krypton flashes of hope and empathy around the globe. It’s frightening how tolerance and open mindedness have become ‘uncool’ virtues, it is incomprehensible how Neo-fascim and sexism have become acceptable in our societies (again!) and it is worrisome where all this ignorance and hate towards anyone and anything ‘different from my own bathroom carpet’ is leading to.

In 2017 we will continue producing music for everyone, with everyone, we will enrich our compositions and our playing with elements from all cultures around the world as we always have, and we will embrace the happiness and gratification we will receive from doing so  –  and pass it on to you. Because that is what art is for.

Yours sincerely

 

 

 

 

Cristo invited for masterclass at FIPA 2017 in Biarritz, FR

Let’s rewind a little, in 2013 Marc Munden’s UTOPIA was rewarded the FIPA D’OR by the International Festival of Audiovisual Programs (FIPA) in Biarritz, France. FIPA 2017 will focus on Canadian talent and has invited Cristo to hold a masterclass, a bit in the genre as he did at the “Journée de la Culture” last September. More details will follow!
