"A jazz harpist of imposing talent" (The New York Times), Colombian-born Edmar Castaneda has turned the New York jazz scene on its ear, transforming the harp into a percussive lead instrument by producing cross-rhythms like a drummer and choral flourishes like a flamenco guitarist. Still in his 20s, he combines Colombian music, Latin jazz, and bebop with ease, strumming bass lines with his left hand while simultaneously plucking melodies with his right. A protégé of Paquito D'Rivera, Castaneda has performed with everyone from Wynton Marsalis to Arturo O'Farrill to Dave Samuels.
