CEIBALES DE SALTA
Ceibales de Salta was born in 2001, as were many other musical groups of the beautiful geographic area of Salta in Argentina. Destiny caused , in some way, the joining of professional guitarists to follow the path of song and Ceibales was not an exception.
Four friends, with unconditional support of family and friends, were able to embark on the road of popular folkloric music, and in time, were able to become one of the major musical groups in Salta. What, at first was a fun musical group of friends, became a reality of a beautiful dream. It is not known in what moment the singing of songs is no longer for personal enjoyment and becomes a compromise, that as Saltenos, is carried in the soul, a greater responsibility left by the teachers of such music: El Cuchi, Barba Castella, Abel Monico Saravia, Hernan Figuora Reyes, Jorge Cafune, Eduardo Foler, y Los Chalchaleros.
The members of Ceibales de Salta are:
Hernan Espina Miranda: first and third vocalist, violin, charango, guitar and wind instruments.
Adrian Fleita: first guitar and base vocalist.
Quito Leccess: second vocalist , rhythmic guitar.
Matias Chavez Diaz: Matias Chavez Diaz: first and third vocalist, guitar and bombo.
Since 2009, Los Ceibales de Salta have prepared a new performance level, looking for a personal new way of continuing to make traditional music combine with a force that characterizes each of them. They search for an evolution both as a person and a musician. Music from all the Hispanic world is now incorporated into their musical presentations.
Los Ceibales de Salta have played for audiences in many of the New England States of America. We, here in Houston, will have the pleasure of their performance and celebrate , not only Argentina , but all the Hispanic countries through their music.
