Innovative musician, composer and poet, Ricardo takes his audiences on a rhythmic, colourful journey on harp, cuatro, maracas and vocals. He combines traditional pieces from a variety of Latin American countries, together with many of his own, often spellbinding compositions; vibrant, energetic and jazzy pieces contrasting with more classical, captivating melodies and romantic vocals. The sound of his Modelo Corvado harps, designed and constructed himself, adds to the uniqueness of his performances, which always gain him many enthusiastic compliments – especially from those who have never seen a harp played this way before!
Tonight's concert will include compositions from his latest album, Espiritu Llanero**A Londres, whose two title tracks are the expression of the Llanero artist who has lived for many years in London and of his gratitude to this great city.
