Victor Martinez Parada
Thu 6 May at 7:30 pm
Don’t miss an avant-garde legend of Latin music, Victor Martinez Parada for one performance only at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre on Thursday May 6 at 7:30pm
Chilean-born, Victor Martinez Parada is recognised as one of the world’s finest classical Latin-American avant-garde solo guitarists.
Classically trained, over the course of his career he has developed an innovative style which generates a world of sound by interpreting music from the classics, folk, jazz and pop using multiple techniques. By listening to his fantasies on pop tunes such as Stevie Wonder’s ‘You Are The Sunshine Of My Life’, Daniel Alomia Roble’s ‘El Condor Pasa’, Laura Branigan’s ‘Self-Control’, Harold Arlen’s ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ and the Lennon-McCartney classic, ‘Yesterday’, you will understand not only how music has shaped him but also how he has shaped music. His music is more than music. He tells a story with his music, building image upon image. He closes his eyes and goes deep into the music. He can only play music that touches his heart. Audiences go with him on his journey cherishing his performances which reflect a professional music career spanning more than 50 years.
Victor has played with and opened for some great names in music including:
Santana, Gypsy Kings, Michael Franti (Spearhead), Buena Vista Social Club, Anthony Callea, Richard Clapton, The Beach Boys, Diana Krall, Blind Boys of Alabama, Human Nature, Brian Ferry, Jackson Brown, Jenny Morris, George Benson, Jimmy Barnes, Taj Mahal, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band and Joan Armatrading.
