OVAL - CALIDOSTÓPIA! (2013)
Descarrega / Download
Calidostópia! is the result of a 10-day, blind-date-esque studio session in Salavdor De Bahia, Brazil. Rapid prototyping + unlimited enthusiasm + working in three shifts = metamelomusical supermerger. I went to to Brazil with tons of released as well as unreleased material - and returned home with dozens of all-new, beautiful songs.
Calidostópia! was made possible through the generous support of the Goethe Institute (Bogotá, Caracas, Cordoba, Montevideo, Salvador und São Paulo branches) as well as the Cultural Foundation of the State of Bahia. And these kinds of cultural organizations curate non-commercial projects.

Agustín Albrieu (Argentina), Dandara Modesto (Brazil), Andrés Gualdrón (Columbia), Maité Gadea (Uruguay), Aiace Felix (Brazil), Hana Kobayashi (Venezuela), Emilia Suto (Brazil). Pretty amazing, how fast and boldly these really young musicians blended their various unique styles with Oval’s complex structures - and how relaxed and effortless they made it all sound.
This might be only the beginning. Watch this space. Also, live shows.
