Hailed for “his amazing technique [that] raises the bar for every harpist” (NPR’s “Fresh Air”), Colombian-born Edmar Castañeda has made a name for himself as the preeminent jazz harp virtuoso. The Latin Grammy nominated artist brings forth a brilliance that beautifully merges the jazz tradition with a diverse set of styles and genres while bringing unbridled attention to a somewhat unexpected instrument: the harp. Singlehandedly, Castañeda has cemented the harp’s place in jazz with innovative technique and heartfelt creativity.

Edmar Castañeda, live at North Sea Jazz Festival
