Sebastian Cruz

Since moving to NYC in 1997, Sebastian Cruz has been a prominent and influential musical voice in the development of a Colombian New York sound that has, over the past ten years, gradually become an ebullient musical scene and community. Performing in NYC in venues such as Joe’s Pub, Central Park’s Summer Stage, CultureFest at Battery Park, BAM Café, and others, Sebastian has been involved as leader, band member, composer, arranger and musical director with leading Colombian based projects in New York. These projects include Coba, La Cumbiamba eNeYé, Luc-a Pulido’s ensemble ” where he is musical director and with whom he has traveled extensively in the U.S. and Europe ” , and now “Sebastian Cruz and The Cheap Landscape Trio.” In all these environments, Sebastian has distinguished himself by constantly searching for unique and deeply personal ways of integrating elements of a rich and ancient musical tradition with a more current and urban sensibility.

“sebastian cruz, the mind behind the wonderful coba, has a new project called “cheap landscape,” and it'll blow your mind. This is colombian, no doubt, but with sebastian's frenetic distorted guitar, it's something you've never heard before.” Robert Kelly-Chonta Records

“Cruz has left calmness aside to pronounce his fury” and “Everything sounds spontaneous, maybe because it was all recorded live in four hours going from the overwhelming calmness of “preludio empañado” and “cometa de plumas, to uncontrollable 'descargas' like “Caranga” and “Paradis Quarter.” Latin American edition of Rolling Stone magazine, about the new CD by Sebastian Cruz and the Cheap Landscape Trio
