Innovative musician, composer and poet, Ricardo Curbelo takes his audiences on a colourful journey through different Latin American countries on harp, cuatro, maracas and vocals. He presents a great combination of traditional pieces together with many of his own, often spellbinding compositions. Vibrant, energetic and jazzy pieces contrast with captivating melodies and romantic vocals. The sound response of his Modelo Corvado harps, which he designs and constructs himself, adds to the uniqueness of his performances and he offers most of us over here quite a different experience of harp music!
Ricardo has lived in London since 1979 and has many years experience on a wide variety of stages. After his very warm welcome at Reeth Memorial Hall in 2014, he is delighted to be returning as part of the launch of his new album, Espiritu Llanero**A Londres (Llanero Spirit**To London). Pieces will include the lively, tropical and very topical Brazil, Brasil, composed as a toast to Brazil for hosting the first South American Olympics.
