Edmar Castañada Quartet

Though the very idea of a harpist leading a jazz band may strike some listeners as an unlikely pairing, Colombian musician and composer Edmar Castañeda, one of the leaders of the next generation of harp players, quickly corrects such presumptions with an intoxicatingly fluid, impossibly intricate and swinging performance style apt to spark dance and shouts of joy. Castañeda gathers inspiration equally from the joropo folk of his Bogotá roots and from his love for contemporary and Latin jazz, spiced with excursions into experimentalism and pop. For his debut headline set at the Atrium, Castañeda and his quartet will perform music from the recently released album Family, including a tribute to the bassist Jaco Pastorius and a fresh take on the classic show tune "My Favorite Things."

This event is approximately 90 minutes.
