ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bo Razón is a multi-instrumentalist, recording artist, writer, and educator whose skill sets have brought him to work with and perform at several global institutions of art and culture such as the British Council, the Goethe Institute, the Alliance Francaise (Paris), Instituto Cervantes, and the Philippine National Commission for Culture & the Arts. He plays several stringed and skinned (percussion) instruments from various cultures around the world.His original compositions and traditional adaptations and arrangements may be described as 'global diaspora music', an exotic ethnofusion stew of diverse influences and inspirations.

As a working musician in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years, Bo Razón was fortunate enough to meet and perform with Latin Jazz and Cuban music legends Francisco Aguabella and Armando Peraza, as well as with Bay Area Latin/Caribbean music artists like John Santos, Michael Spiro, Rebecca Mauleon, Jesus Diaz, Bobi Cespedes, Karl Perazzo, Greg Landau, Jeff Narell, to name a few. As a core member of San Francisco’s premiere worldbeat band, Big City, he headlined at Berkley’s Greek Theater, the Kabuki, Wolfgang, the I-Beam, and the Great American Music Hall, sharing the stage with a spectrum of notable artists such as Herbie Hancock, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ornette Coleman, X, Fishbone, Primus, Nona Hendryx, General Public, and many more. He has also performed at the prestigious Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Asia Society Concert Theatre in New York, and at the Smithsonian Institution’s Folklife Festival in Washington D.C. In addition, Bo has played in world music festivals in Barcelona and Madrid, and in jazz festivals in San Jose and Hollywood, California. In the late 1990’s, Bo went to Cuba to attend Master Classes and Workshops on Cuban music at the National School for the Arts there. He also conducted field research on Afro-Cuban folklore and music under the auspices of the Anthropological Society of Cuba in Matanzas, the repository of African culture in Cuba. Bo has also performed and collaborated with master musicians and cultural artists from Jamaica, Cuba, Brazil, the Philippines, India, Nepal, Trinidad-Tobago, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and other African and Caribbean countries. He has also immersed himself in Kulintang, the ethnic gong music of the Maguindanawan people of Mindanao in the southern Philippines. Bo continues to engage in the Afro-Caribbean musical spectrum, in the musical mother lode of West Africa, in the rich diversity of Brazilian music, in Iberian musical expressions, and North American Blues, Jazz, Folk, Pop, and Rock.
