1 History 2 Discography
The group's history begins in 1984 when Sixto Aybar Alborada founded in his hometown, Ocobamba. Their music, essentially inspired by the native cultures of the Peruvian Andes, is carried by Sixtucha to Germanic lands, finally settling in the city of Cologne. And hence the musician's ear is extended by all genres and styles that coexist in a cosmopolitan city, providing a different sensitivity to the instruments, regardless of their origin. The traditional Andean music, hands and voices of Alborada, upgraded, renewed. In the beginning, support and drive of the renowned Prado and July Manuelcha Humala was essential.
But many other names moved by Dawn, different experiences and nationalities. With all Alborada was experimenting and dabbling in different musical forms, but always with his particular style and distinctive. From the strictly traditional and fusion through music for meditation. In producing "Tropical" approach to contemporary dance beats and more. In the series "Melodies of the Heart" and "Unforgettable Melodies" explore the popular rhythms of the West.
But with the arrival of Victor Valley and Lenin Rook feat the new sound of Alborada. A new styles and rhythms that they bring from their respective communities, joined the experiences gained by visiting indigenous cultures of Canada and the United States. These new experiences are manifest from its production "Meditation", where Alborada implies that their new sound is much more than just a stylistic issue. Behind the new proposal lies the arduous task of building intercultural bridges between human groups arbitrarily separated by history. Keep in mind that for many years the indigenous traditions of North and South were able to feed on each other, so Alborada with his adventurous spirit and renewal would reverse the path of the conquerors, bringing the traditions of these peoples.
In recent albums "Highway to the Sun" or "Instrumental" We note the rapid changes experienced by the group. They are incorporated new instruments such as those from the East. Similarly a new clothing is created by Sixto Alborada, inspired by the costumes worn by Peruvian Scissors Dancers.
Although Alborada joined with other international groups such as the Bolivians "Savia Andina" and "Kjarkas" just comes to them Peruvian public support by appearing at the Music Festival held in Park Lima in March 2004 . This music festival and 22 years of its founding Alborada brought together 22 musicians, including its recent incorporation: Wilber "Onion" Aybar. Alborada now no longer just the Andean music group, is now an artistic proposal that includes music, dance and visual performances, so that each presentation is a new event.
It is admirable the coupling of Ayacucho Ronald Contreras guitar, Oscar Cavero, guitarist Felipe Armando Manzanero and Pumarada, bassist Eva Ayllon. Also Cesar Lescano, drummer Gian Marco, and percussionists Kike Herrera, Leonardo "Gigio" Parodi (musician Eva Ayllon) and Hugo Bravo this latter one a Grammy winner with Susana Baca, show their capacity for dialogue with the Andean . There is tenderness in the voices of the chorus by July Pumarada, Claudia Garcia and Julio Zavala singing teacher. Note the classical and modern Cesar Pacheco placed on cello and the concertmaster of the National Symphony Orchestra of Peru, Maria Elena Pacheco on the violin. And all under the musical direction and arrangements by Ivan Lazarte Raffo.
In the account we have more than 16 productions, talented and innovative air. Alborada will walk hand in hand with those who listen and believe.
