The World is Too Much

Friday / November 15, 2013 / 1:00 p.m.
David Friend Recital Hall

With influences and interests that range from metal to the folk music (passing by styles like jazz, R&B, and funk) of countries in Latin America, Europe, and North America, Felipe Guzmán presents an eclectic and rich blend of his experiences as an artist, a musician, and a human being that seeks to affect physically and emotionally every person he can. Hopefully, this artistic proposal will make you move your head and your hips, but will also make you smile and cry.

With a marimba, some African, Brazilian, Caribbean, and Colombian drums, a guitar, a drum set, a bass, a piano, a keyboard, and maybe some horns, Guzmán will try to paint with music the effect that the world's immense diversity has had on him throughout the years.

Original compositions and arrangements, plus music from artists like Michael League, Henry Castro, Joao Bosco, Mauricio Zotarelli, Dhaffar Youssef, Robert "Sput" Searight, and many more will be the argument of this artistic statement.
