Performance on Una y Mil Voces – Nuestro Secreto in French

Saturday, May 30, 2015 I was honoured to perform as a special guest on Una y Mil Voces hosted by Bartola on Perú’s national television station, TV Perú. It was wonderful to share the stage again with friends such as Jorge Pardo, Jorge Luis Jasso, Alejandro Velasquez, Julie Freundt, and Julio Andrade. That particular two hour edition of Una y Mil Voces was to honour famed Peruvian composer, Félix Pasache. As such I sang one of his most famous songs, Nuesto Secreto translated into French.

Watch Felipe Alberto’s New Music Video for “La Apañadora”

Today I present you with the video of La Apañadora, a beautiful tondero by Peruvian composer – Alicia Maguiña. I hope you enjoy it. This project is my labour of love and admiration for the cultural legacy of Peru’s traditional music. I hope that this project helps to foment a great appreciation for this musical genre. You can also listen this cover of La Apañadora on my Muzooka profile.

Felipe Alberto - Calgary Red 106.7 FM

Back on Destino – Calgary Red 106.7 FM

I am happy to be once again on Calgary’s Spanish radio show Destino – Calgary on Red 106.7 FM. On today’s show, along with some other artists, we discussed the diversity of Christmas traditions in Latin-American countries … and of course we ended the show with a live jam.

Felipe Alberto - Christmas at the Madison 2014

Benefit Concert – Christmas at the Madison

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. Stephen’s Church in Calgary’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.

Radio Interview – Red 106.7 FM Destino

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.  It was great to talk about criollo and Andean music on the show.

Filming a Music Video

After days of prep we just finished filming the first music video for the launch of the album – Alma del Ayer.  Can’t say which criollo piece it is yet…the secret doesn’t come out until the launch. Special thanks to L&C Style Productions for the cinematography and production.

 

Also special thanks to the following actors: Stefan Montalbetti, Breanna Palmer, Paula Osorio Ortiz, Myles Shedden, Andrean Kloppenborg, Andrew Plokhii.  I also extend thanks to the following restaurants who shared their space for the project: Vin Room and Buon Giorno Ristorante Italiano.

All that is left is to include a few scenes filmed in the city of Chachapoyas to finalize the production of this music video.
