Fiestaval in Calgary, Canada, July 24
Enjoy Felipe Albertoâ€™s the live recording of peruvian huaynos in the style of the northern peruvian highlands.
This Popurri de Huaynos (or huayno mashup) is performed in the style of Peruâ€™s northern highlands. This track is included in Felipe Albertoâ€™s Alma del Ayer album. Alma del Ayer is a collection of traditional peruvian music recorded and produced independently in Saskatoon, Canada in the studio of Josh J. Palmer. All the songs were recorded with traditional instruments to maintain the authenticity of the criollo and and andean musical genres. Alma del Ayer is a work inspired by love for peruvian music and the musical legacy of the latin america.
Thank you Branding AvatarÂ in collaboration with J.M.R. Public Relations for all your enthusiasm, support, and guidance on the Alma del Ayer project. Alma del Ayer is an album devoted to showcasing the Peruvian style known as Musica Criolla, a product of African, Spanish, and Andean sounds fused over 500 years. Special thanks to Steve Owens for believing in the project and submitting it to the 58th Grammy Awards.
On June 27, 2015, Pasache Music brings you an evening of traditional Peruvian musica criolla with breakout artist Felipe Alberto at Lolita’s Lounge in the City of Calgary.
After performance in Lima Peru, Felipe Alberto returns to Calgary. Come to enjoy the rich sounds of South American guitar, the african rooted rhythms of the Peruvian cajon, and a style of singing from a bygone era.
Along with Willy GarcÃa on cajon and congas, we gave the â€œFur Â & Feathersâ€ art exposition at Studio CÂ a touch of Latin music.
Of all the shows I do a year one of my favourites is undoubtedly Christmas at the Madison. Every year Ms. Louise Gallagher puts in countless hours to organize this event in which musicians, comedians, and visual artists donate their art to raise funds for the Madison, a shelter for homeless veterans in the City of Calgary. The concert was held this year at the historic St. Stephenâ€™s Church in Calgaryâ€™s downtown. These events show the true Christmas spirit and the love which the Christ Child represents in our world; I thank Ms. Louise Gallagher for her yearly efforts and enthusiasm in this endeavour.
It is truly a privilege to share a little of my art for this cause. What is more, because of the proximity that artists have to the audience at this venue, there is a much more intimate atmosphere than at most concerts. This closeness makes me feel as if I were just jamming in my living room with friends. As always it was a wonderful evening.
Once again I am shooting a music video of criollo music withÂ L&C Style Productions. We did most of todayâ€™s shoot atÂ The Beach a truly remarkable recording studio in Calgary. Â We did a few other scenes around the Eau Claire area. Â Special thanks to my friends Willy Garcia Ascencio and RaÃºl LeguÃa Camino for their collaboration in some of the scenes. Also special thanks to the lovely Miss Jill Maria Robinson for acting alongside me.
Special thanks to Alex Macias, radio host of Destino-Calgary on Red 106.7 FM, for inviting me to discuss my upcoming album, Alma del Ayer, launching in a few months. Â It was great to talk about criollo and Andean music on the show.
July Saturday 19th and Sunday the 20th I participated in Calgaryâ€™s Latin festival â€“Fiestavalâ€” where I played traditional Latin-American music with the support of my bro, Willy Garcia Ascenscio on cajon. Always a pleasure to play for the Calgary crowd.
