Description

Edmar Castañeda was born in 1978 in Bogotá. Since his move to the United States in 1994, Castañeda has taken New York and the world stage by storm with the sheer force of his virtuosic command of the harp—revolutionizing the way audiences and critics alike consider an instrument commonly relegated to the “unusual category.” A master at realizing beautiful complexities of time while skillfully drawing out lush colors and dynamic spirit, The New York Times characterized Castañeda as “almost a world unto himself.”
