Una más 1+ – album de duo de banjos

Lluís Gómez et Jean-Marie Redon ont sorti un album de duo de banjos. La plupart de ces instrumentaux sont des compositions originales de Lluís et de Jean Marie. Pour les accompagner, Lluís et Jean Marie ont fait appel à divers musiciens et amis européens:
espagnols : Maribel Rivero (contrebasse), Josep Traver (guitare), Carol Duran (violon), Marta Roma (violoncelle)
français : Raphael Maillet (violon), Sharon Lombardi (basse électro-acoustique)
danois : Jesper Rübner Petersen (mandoline)
slovaque : Henrich Novak (Dobro).

Vous pouvez l’écouter et le commander sur BandCamp

Si vous êtes banjoïstes et que vous désirez apprendre les morceaux, un fichier pdf avec les tablatures des duos est disponible. Pour l’acheter, contacter Lluís Gómez.

Ils en parlent…
Tony Trischka a fait une revue de l’album dans la rubrique ‘Reviews’ (Review: Una Mas by Lluís Gómez and Jean Marie Redon) de Banjo Newsletter.

Pete Wernick: “Jean Marie and Lluís have created provocative original music, exploring the unique textures of two banjos in harmony. Their intricate melodies and voicings are a welcome addition to the library of this genre!”
Tony Trischka: “A double banjo album is a thing of joy for five string enthusiasts…..and who better to extend the short list of this genre than the wonderful Jean Marie and Lluís, who I am also honored to consider my friends.”

Banjo et musique old time à l’honneur au Théâtre National de Catalogne – Lluis Gomez

Lluis Gomez participe en ce moment à un spectacle mêlant théâtre et musique old time. Voici son témoignage.

« Actuellement, je joue du banjo au Théâtre National de Catalogne (TNC-Teatre Nacional de Catalunya), dans la pièce Desire Under The Elms (Desig sota els oms), écrite par Eugene O’Neill, dirigée par la très célèbre Joan Ollé et interprétée par les acteurs Laura Conejero, Pep Cruz et Ivan Benet. L’action se déroule en 1850, le spectacle dure deux heures et je joue pendant la cérémonie de la naissance du bébé, à l’acte 3.
Nous jouons en trio, avec Iban Beltran au violon et El Sueco à la guitare, nous faisons tous de la musique oldtime, et nous chantons et dansons parmi les acteurs.
Travailler avec des acteurs est une expérience incroyable, c’est tellement différent des concerts live. Et c’est aussi amusant de surpasser des handicaps musicaux tels que jouer « Old Joe Clark » and « Devil’s Dream » en la ouvert parce que je ne dois pas utiliser de capo.
Je joue sur deux banjos fabriqués par David Prat, un banjo gourde et un banjo old time.
Voici le lien, si vous passez par Barcelone, vous pourrez m’y voir en « redhaired boy », du mercredi au dimanche!! »

« Currently I’m playing banjo at the TNC (Teatre Nacional de Catalunya), Desire Under The Elms ( Desig sota els oms), written by Eugene O’Neill and directed by well known Joan Ollé and with actors Laura Conejero, Pep Cruz and Ivan Benet. The situation is in 1850, it is a two-hour performance and I play at the child born celebration, Act 3.
We’re a trio, with Iban Beltran on fiddle and El Sueco on guitar, all of us we play oldtime music and we sing and dance among other actors.
It is amazing to work with actors, is completely different than to play in live. Also it is funny, the musical handicaps like playing « Old Joe Clark » and « Devil’s Dream » in open A because I mustn’t put the capo.
I’m playing two banjos made by David Prat, a gourd and an old time banjo.
