Ricardo takes his audiences on a rich, colourful journey on harp, cuatro and vocals.
Innovative musician, composer and poet Ricardo Curbelo will be performing at Halton Mill on May 12.
Ricardo takes his audiences on a rich, colourful journey on harp, cuatro and vocals, combining traditional pieces from a variety of Latin American countries, together with many of his own spellbinding compositions.
Vibrant, energetic and jazzy pieces contrast with more classical, captivating melodies and romantic vocals.
The sound of his Modelo Corvado harps, which he designed and constructed himself, adds to the uniqueness of his performances and concerts are always followed by many enthusiastic compliments – especially from those who have never seen and heard a harp played this way before!
Over the past few years his solo concerts have been very well received and Ricardo is delighted to have been given the opportunity to bring his very special music to Halton Mill. His performance will include compositions from his most recent album, Espiritu Llanero**A Londres, whose two title tracks express the gratitude of this Llanero artist to London, where he has lived for many years.

“Very atmospheric, mesmerising, great range of emotions evoked - thank you! The Homo sapiens piece reminded me (in places!) of Pink Floyd.”
( Reeth Memorial Hall, Yorkshire, August 2016)
“This was a delightful sojourn into a different place. Such mastery and melody.” (St Andrew’s Church, Leytonstone, November 2019)
