When acclaimed pianist Hiromi first met Edmar Castañeda at the Montreal Jazz Festival a couple of years ago, she was amazed by his playing and knew instinctively that they should collaborate. Their debut performance at NYC’s famed Blue Note was unexpected and impulsive, a truly electrifying coupling. What they created together musically was absolutely mesmerizing – so the two decided to join forces and tour as a duo. “Edmar Castañeda is almost a world unto himself,” says The New York Times. “Hiromi is to the piano what a Hendrix and Van Halen are to the guitar,” says All About Jazz . “Yeah, she’s that good.” Those are the kind of raves these two world music stars earn when they perform solo – so just imagine the music they make when they play together!
