by | May 26, 2022

1. Why are you a musician?

I grew up in a very musical home. My father is a musician and I started making music when I was very young. I don’t think I’ve ever decided to become a musician. It was a completely natural thing

2. Who are your musical inspirations?

My dad has always been my main inspiration and the rest changes constantly. Sometimes I get obsessed with a particular band or musician ad and I listen to their music a thousand times in a loop and I would move to something else. I’m very curious and I’m always looking for new sources of inspiration

3. What is your practice routine?

I try to practice every day at least for a few minutes. The day of the concert if I can I’ll practice for a couple hours. I don’t have a structured routine. I just pick up the guitar and start by improvising something until I either move to something specific I need to practice for a show or a session or I do some technique or compose a tune. The only rule is just make music

4. Why did you make this album?

By Dario Acosta Teich

Since then minute I left Argentina I’ve felt a strong need to reconnect with my roots but without giving up my love for jazz. Fortunately, in New York I met the musicians I collaborate with, who also happen to be for Argentina and have that same feeling about Argentine traditions. The sound we created together was exactly what I was looking for. That’s why I decided that I decided to make a album that I can share with people from around the world and perhaps inspire someone.

5. What were the biggest obstacles in making this album? 

Coordinating rehearsals and scheduling the recording session with everyone was very difficult. The musicians I play with are super busy, when one is in town the other one is on tour. One everyone is in town there’s no availability in the studio I like… It was a challenge and I had to let go many things but we made it happen and I’m very happy with the results.
