Welcome to my Kickstarter campaign. Saxofón Criollo is my way of showing my heritage and I am proud to bring it to you through Saponegro Records.
I grew up listening to Peruvian coastal music. Sometimes it is called “Afro-Peruvian”
and other times it is called “criolla”… but what is important to me right now is
that through this album I am able to share with you the experience of making
music along the coast of Perú (and New York City).
To the right you will find simple ways to contribute to this campaign. Your investment will support the release of Saxofón Criollo in the United States, now set for December 8th, 2011. I will greatly appreciate it if you could forward this link to friends, family and co-workers who may love music. Here are some facts about the album: 1) The album was recorded in the Dolan Studio in NYC. 2) The musicians are Yuri Juárez (guitar), Antonio Vilchez (cajón) and Pablo Menares (bass). 3) Guest artists on the album include the Peruvian National Symphony’s Marco Lucioni (cello), Roland Díaz from La Peña don Porfirio (guitar), Aldo Borjas “pollo negro” on castagnets, and legendary criollo master musician José “Pepe” Villalobos Cavero (percussion). 4) This will be the first album to feature me as a vocalist, on one track, "Eva".
You can listen to a 30 second clip of the album here:
I thank you in advance for visiting and for your support.
With best wishes,
