Harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda – who grew up immersed in the harp-forward joropo music of the Colombian grasslands – combines traditional music with Latin jazz to create his own distinctive voice and forge his own path as a bandleader.
His Trio combines unlikely ingredients – harp, trombone, and percussion – to dazzling effect, and makes magic out of the harp’s duality as the source of propulsive rhythms and intricate melodies.

“If you aren’t watching Castañeda in action, you might think you’re listening to an ensemble rather than a solo player.”Hartford Courant
