Alejandro Florez: tiple and bandola
Ricardo Gallo: piano
Originally from Bogotá Colombia, pianist Ricardo Gallo and guitarist Alejandro Flórez have been generating several projects that relate contemporary musical expressions to the musical traditions of their homeland. In this duo project, they present their own pieces inspired by the string music from the Colombian Andes. Alejandro Flórez plays in this project the tiple a traditional string instrument from the region. Gallo and Flórez explore the possibilities of improvisation departing from the sounds and the compositions of this unlikely duo.
