Don Soledad Trio presents: Parallels

Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts, 1905 Kentucky Ave, Winter Park

Don Soledad (flamenco guitar), Shankh Lahiri (tabla) and Kanada Narahari (sitar) take us on a journey into the world of Indian classical music and flamenco guitar.

The idea of combining Indian classical music with western music was first introduced in the 1970s by the great jazz guitarist John McLaughlin and his band’s Mahavishnu Orchestra and Shakti. Indian music is based on melodic framework (ragas) or single notes played in a specific order. Flamenco music in particular is derived from Arabic and Romani Gypsy music and is similar to Indian music in the use of a rhythmic approach and counting system.

“Parallels” is a celebration of these musical styles infused together as well as in its traditional form, performed solo, duo and trio.

Don Soledad: Inspired by the guitar of flamenco legend; Paco de Lucia, Don Soledad cultivated his sophisticated, soulful sounds in Northern, California, beginning with his early guitar studies with the great Spanish flamenco maestros; Mariano de Cordobá and Agustin Ríos - the nephew of legendary guitarist Diego del Gastor. His studies continued in the Southern region of Spain; Andalucía in the city of Jerez de la Frontera - with guitarist Juan Diego Mateos. Soon thereafter, he was performing shows in San Francisco and the Sonoma and Napa Valley wineries.

The Don Soledad Group and recently won 1st place at Orlando's FusionFest 2020 for Best Musician category.

Daniela Soledade and Nate Najar - Love & Bossa Nova LIVE

Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts, 1905 Kentucky Ave, Winter Park

Join us as Daniela Soledade and Nate Najar bring their live version of "Love and Bossa Nova" to Blue Bamboo!

Downbeat Magazine calls her a “master of classic samba and bossa nova.” Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, vocalist/guitarist Daniela Soledade grew up in a family of musicians with a direct line to the origins of Bossa Nova. Daniela’s grandfather was Paulo Soledade, who composed songs with legendary Brazilian artists Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Toquinho and Baden Powell. Her father, Paulinho Soledade is an artist and producer who learned guitar from Baden Powell himself and has worked with legends Ivan Lins and Gilberto Gil among others. As a child Daniela participated in studio recordings for Brazilian artists such as Xuxa and the band Oxgênios. At age 14, she placed first in the entrance exam to attend the prestigious Music Conservatory Villa Lobos. Daniela settled in the United States in 2003 and maintains a busy performing schedule. Her debut album, “A Moment of You” was released September 6, 2019 on Blue Line Music Records.

Guitarist Nate Najar is emerging as one of this decade’s finest modern jazz exponents. He is a player who uses a distinctive technique to convey his artistic prowess- not many artists play acoustic classical guitar with right hand classical technique, yet it is the perfect choice for Najar’s comprehensive approach. Not restricted to single notes or chords, Nate seamlessly weaves melody, harmony and rhythmic freedom. The result is music that is swinging, emotional, inventive and interesting. Continuing to perform at major venues and festivals across the entire globe, Nate’s latest album, Under Paris Skies was released in 2018 on Woodward Avenue Records. Rick Andersen of the All Music Guide called Nate "one of the most consistently interesting and stylish young guitarists on the jazz scene…." Becky Byrd, wife of the late guitarist Charlie Byrd says it best: "There is no doubt that there is a piece of Charlie's soul in Nate's mind, heart and fingers. Get ready world, here comes Nate Najar!!!"
