about

With a long career as a double bassist to back him up Juan Pablo Balcazar now turns his attention to a project based on Columbian folk music, as seen through the perspective of contemporary jazz; a language he is particularly akin to.

On Chiva’Quartet (undp18) we find an equal number of original compositions and popular songs written by the great masters of Columbian music, with arrangements by Balcazar which tap into the wealth of traditional rhythms such as “el bambuco” or “los passillos”, along with African rhythms from the Atlantic coast of the South American country.

In recording this project, J. P. Balcazar was able to rely on the collaboration of Juan Berbin, a drummer and percussionist well acquainted with the Latin American tradition of rhythm, as well at the well known pianist Marco Mezquida and the talented flautist from Malaga, Fernando Brox.
______________________________________________________________

Juan Pablo Balcazar amb una llarga trajectòria com a contrabaixista posa la seva atenció aquesta vegada en el folklore colombià per fer-ne una revisió actual utilitzant el llenguatge que li és més proper, el del jazz contemporani.


A Chiva’Quartet (undp18) i escoltarem un repertori format tant per composicions originals com per cançons populars escrites pels grans mestres de la música colombiana i arranjades pel mateix Balcazar, que ha utilitzat la riquesa dels ritmes d’arrel tradicional com “el bambuco”, “los passillos" i els ritmes d’arrel africana provinents de la costa atlàntica del pais sud-americà.


Per dur a terme aquest projecte J.P. Balcazar a comptat amb la complicitat del baterista i percussionista Juan Berbin coneixedor de la tradició rítmica llatinoamericana, del reconegut pianista Marco Mezquida i del talentós flautista malagueny Fernando Brox.
