Presences 2015

Listen to “Espacio Ritual” performed by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France

Espacio Ritual received its Parisian premiere at the Festival Presences in February 2015. Listen to this wonderful performance below!

A synthesis of ritual and popular African-Dominican music collides in this powerful piece for large orchestra. Expressive textures captured from the musical diversity of this caribbean island (palos, gaga, salves, congos) culminate in the sonic recreation of a Dominican ritual festivity.

My music emerges from the heart of Caribbean rhythms and chants. We are a creative mixture of cultures – an explosion of sounds, colors, and imagination. It has always been my universe, my poetic vision of the world.
