On his new album Colombian-born pianist Pablo Rojas presents piano music from five Latin-American countries. These diverting pieces tell of the history of South America, Spanish and Portuguese reign and the incorporation of Indigenous and African culture. Adding to works by the popular Ginastera and Piazzolla, Rojas discloses a world of gems by lesser known composer like Luis Calvo, Ernesto Nazareth, Ernesto Lecuona, Ignacio Cervantes, Carlos Vieco, Horacio Salgan or Gerry Weil. They stand for a wonderful mixture of most diverse influences and styles and reflect folklore from the Andes and Argentinian tango as well as dances and waltzes from Cuba, Colombia and Brasil, while at the same time roaming the border to jazz. Pablo Andres Rojas De Los Rios, who was born in Pasto, Colombia completed his piano studies at the Universidad de Antioquia, where he graduated with distinction. Pablo came to Vienna in order to study piano pedagogy at the Universitat fur Musik und darstellende Kunst. Pablo has performed as a soloist with the Symphonic Orchestra of Colombia, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Bogota, the Symphonic Orchestra of Barranquilla, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Medellin, and the Symphonic Orchestra of Yucatan. As an orchestral musician Pablo has played with, among others, the Tonkunstler Orchester Niederosterreich. As well as classical music Pablo also devotes himself to folklore and the popular rhythms of his culture of origin for instance in the duo Barembuem-Rojas, which explores the essence of the Argentinea tango as folk music.
