“Leaving Home” will be held in tribute to the Colombian singer-songwriter Luciano-Chano Díaz. Using the scores, and recordings that he carefully and lovingly picked for a time of remembrance, his local musician friends have put together a unique selection of his bambucos, sanjuaneros, joropos, cumbias and vallenatos, mixed with bossa and bolero.
The concert program seeks to highlight unrecorded songs written by the artist, and share with the audience some of his favorite genres. He leaves behind an exquisite repertoire of Colombian popular music including bambucos, sanjuaneros, cumbias, vallenatos and joropos which has been recognized and awarded the status of “Cultural Patrimony of Colombia”. Nonetheless, his influences are as varied as Brazilian Bossa and Cuban Bolero and Son.
He captured these influences in the creations that will be shared in “Ya me voy de mi tierra- Un homenaje al maestro Luciano-Chano Díaz-“Leaving home: A tribute to master Colombian singer-songwriter Luciano-Chano Díaz
“….recorrí mis huellas cuando amanecía, enredando versos con su melodía”.(“….I followed my footsteps at dawn entangling verses in a melody…”)
