LA TIMBA LOCA (United States)
Founded in May 1998 Boston, Massachusetts- Directed by arranger & pianist Gonzalo Grau, the project combines three objectives: to recover themes considered “classical” of latin music with arrangements- in a modern style; present original material exploring music that will allow to create timba rhythem. Last but not least, to incorporate in music other propositions such as theather, braking the mold and offering a product totally unique and innovative. Their debut gave birth to one of the first bands representing that style of music away from our country. They performed in England's most important festivals & night clubs.
In 2001 they signed a contract with the venezuelan record company Carijazz- a year later their first album "Más allá de La Habana" was completed.
Months later, they toured and performed in Australia's House of the Opera. Also performing in the Global Village Festival in Sydney Australia.They are currently working on their second album. The group is made up of 11 musicians proceeding from Venezuela, Puerto Rico, United States, Costa Rica, Holland, Greece & Brazil, a wonderful mix of cultures contributing to the "crazy" sound of a age in music "timbear".
