Music Genre(s):
Folk / Celtic / Celtic Harp / World Music / Ambient / Chill Out
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I took knowledge of the Celtic world at the age of twenty motivated by my love of literary and musical subjects. Thanks to Janet & Robin Williamson (www.pigswhiskermusic.co.uk), and Irish harp champion Sylvia Woods (www.harpcenter.com), I began to incorporate, the melodies and knowledge of traditional techniques and instruments, focusing on the implementation of whistle and Gaelic harp. Passion that lead me by 1985 to organize a Celtic Festival in Buenos Aires (historically the first took place in l960), as well as other cultural and musical activities within the Irish community living in Argentina, thereby developing an attitude because of the disregard on certain community sectors for their Celtic roots. At the beginning of'90 and after several performances and a tour in Patagonia, for welsh communities settled in our country, 'Poitín' dissolves, leaving a testimony tape released independently in 1988, memorable for being the first of its kind in Argentina. In the month of May 2003, the prestigious Galician folk group "Luar na Lubre" add music to one of my poems. This collaboration is crystallized in April 2004 with the inclusion of this piece on two tracks from the album "Hai un Paraiso" published under the label Warner Music Spain. Alongside Bran, I did participated as guest musician of their South American tour, performing at the Opera Theatre in Buenos Aires on 12-7-04. In 2008 – I created a blogsite of my own named "Celtic Sprite - My musical perspective on celtic roots and other works”. Music, culture and literature take place along with the collaboration of musicians and journalists from other countries. 2010 – On January I created the Facebook Page “Amigos Celtas” A site intended to spread celtic culture and activities in Spanish, along with local and foreign co-equipers
