Ricardo Gallo

Colombian pianist and composer Ricardo Gallo has written for acoustic and electro-acoustic formats, for short films, videos, and multimedia stage productions, and has performed and written for improvisatory groups. He has published seven albums under his name, his music has appeared in several compilations in Colombia, USA, and Europe, and has participated in recordings of several other groups.

His main projects are his quartet that he leads since 2004 in Bogotá with some of the best musicians from Colombia’s scene: drummer Jorge Sepúlveda, bassist Juan Manuel Toro, and percussionist Juan David Castaño, developing original compositions and a way of improvising that integrates an avant-garde and free language with rhythmic and melodic elements from Colombian traditions. With them he has released four albums: Los Cerros Testigos (2005), Urdimbres y Marañas (2007), Resistencias (2010), and Tribu del Asfalto (2013). These four albums have been published under the catalogue of the musician’s collective La Distritofonica....
