Edmar Castaneda



Harpist, band leader and composer Edmar Castañeda was born in Bogotá, Colombia, where he started playing Colombian harp at the early age of thirteen. He has a unique style of playing harp. Combining latin and contemporary jazz with traditional Colombian music, Edmar has carved a firm place in the international jazz scene. A jazz harpist of imposing talent, he transforms the harp into a lead instrument to phenomenal effect. Producing cross-rhythms like a drummer, smashing chordal flourishes like a flamenco guitarist and collating bebop and Colombian music, he is practically a world into himself. His style is fascinatingly percussive and he plucks dynamic basslines almost invisibly while picking out melodies with his right hand. He has performed with Paquito D'Rivera, John Scofield ,Wynton Marsalis JLCO, John Patitucci, Pablo Zinger, Ed Simon , Trio De Paz, Guiovani Hidalgo, Lila Downs, Janis siegel , Chico O'farrill Afro-cuban jazz big band , DJango Reinhardt NY festival, The united Nation Orchestra , among other renowned musicians.
