Duo de Sol
Guitarist Tom Farrell strides effortlessly across the worlds of Classical, Contemporary and music of the globe. As conductor of the Los Angeles Electric 8, Tom launched the group on a successful East Coast tour in the spring of 2011 where they were greeted with great enthusiasm at the Strathmore Guitar Festival and received a Critics' Pick in Time Out New York. Rising opportunities in Los Angeles have continued to evolve Tom into an extremely versatile guitar player and composer. Recently Tom recorded Hermano for the soundtrack of the Will Ferrell movie Casa de mi Padre.
Uruguayan violinist Javier Orman carries with him a diverse array of influences, from J.S. Bach to Thom Yorke to Horace Silver. He has toured with Entropy Ensemble, a hybrid chamber/jazz group that routinely shuffles forward-driven rock'n'roll, jazzed-up reggae and minimalism, all while re-interpreting Radiohead, and performed throughout Latin America with his Terranova Piano Trio. In 2009, he founded Kidzymphony, an orchestral program for young children in Charleston, South Carolina, that continues to nurture 50 children in music each year.
Their first album Mirá, a five-track EP, has critics praising it as “seat of the pants playing, confident enough to take risks” with “compositions that live in the land of exceptional genius.” Available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
