About This Show

Edmar Castaneda has a unique style of playing harp, combining latin jazz with traditional Colombian music. Producing cross-rhythms like a drummer, smashing chordal flourishes like a flamenco guitarist and collating bebop and Colombian music, he is practically a world unto himself. His style is percussive and he plucks dynamic basslines almost invisibly while picking out melodies with his right hand. He has performed with Paquito O’Rivera, John Scofield, Wynton Marsalis, John Patitucci, Pablo Zinger, Ed Simon, Trio De Paz, Guivoani Hidalgo, Lila downs, Janis Siegel, Chico O-farril Afro-Cuban Jazz Big Band, Django Reinhardt, The NY Festival, The United Nations Orchestra, among others. The NY Times called him "A jazz harpist of imposing talent", and Jazz Times described him as "phenomenal."
