I am happy to announce I will be holding a monthly concert series called ECOS at one of the coolest, raddest and newest venues in Orlando, Bynx Cafe. We have partnered to bring you awesome concerts and events every last Friday of the month, check out the promo video:
I wanted to share my entry for this year’s Tiny Desk Contest from NPR. This time around I was jamming with my good friend and professional cello player, Yamilet Trujillo. Additionally the videography was in charge of my good friend Andres García.
We performed “Vultures”, a new song I wrote specifically for this contest, and that is themed around risk and taking chances as in a gamble.
Here is the video, hope you enjoy it:
Coming back to the stage was something i thought about a lot during the pandemic. I certainly did not want to jump into it right away. For one, I felt it was unethical and irresponsible with myself and the audience. To ask people to come out and support a show amidst the uncertainty provoked by COVID-19 was something I did not want to live with.
But after nearly two years I decided to test the waters and sing at the stage of Immerse 2021. The accommodations and safety precautions provided by the Dr. Phillips Center Outdoor stage made me feel at ease and allow me to come back to doing what I love: sharing my music with the audience. I wanted to do something different for this year’s festival, so I got ready with the first song I wrote during lockdown, Pandemia, and joined forces with local dance group Bad Wolf Dance Collective to express and share the experience many of us had during the last two years.
I was able to collect documentation of our performance and you can see it here.
I would like to thank Creative City Project and Andres Garcia for providing this footage.
