I am a songwriter, composer/arranger and self-releasing artist and producer resident in Ireland working within the Latin genre.
Back in Perú I started in music since I was a teenager and playing Latin American music that is played with charango, ronroco, zampoñas (pan pipes), quena (andean flute) and others.
Something that characterized us was that we always try to create our own compositions in order to express life experiences in the best way, and it was this experience that marked me a lot and that made me start studying and learning more about music composition and songwriting.
I did work alongside Cuban Director and composer Mr. Danilo Karell -Director and Composer of Dublin based Salsa Band Sabor Cubano- and Manu Ramirez, Director of the Latin Band Manu and the Latino House, from 2002 to 2011,
EYJ follows three steps when composing a song: the vocals, the composition itself and the instrumentation.
On the composition side (lyrics, rhythms, and pace), the listener can enjoy the captivating beat of Salsa or a Romantic and sensual Bolero, an exotic Cumbia, or a Cha Cha plus Latin Pop and Ballads in Spanish and English. You can choose to dance, to listen to it, or just to relax.
The instrumentation varies according to the song, so you can listen to a vibrant trumpet, piano, trombone and timbales in Salsa songs, and a melodic Accordion leading a Cumbia melody, or perhaps a saxophone and crunchy drums in a Latin pop song.
Currently working with musicians to record the songs shortly.
These last few months have been difficult because of Covid-19, in fact, I have not been able to record the voices and music in the studio so in order to continue with the project I had to resort to virtual instrumentation (the sounds you hear from the piano, trumpet, -except for the drums in two songs here-) The music recording must happen in early 2021.
However, I hope that soon I can restart the rehearsals to be able to present my music to you. At the moment I keep myself busy composing new songs.
