Lulled by the rhythms of the Pacific coast and the Andean melodies, Helena RECALDE bassist, double bassist and Ecuadorian singer composes and writes a music laden with emotion, her experience and stories from her home country. She surrounds herself with eclectic and talented musicians to colour her compositions of jazz and improvisation.
Her “Mojate” disc gives us a mixed music; from jazz with Afro-latins rhythms to take us on a trip to the top of the Andes.
Her texts evoke the valleys of the Cordillera, the mother who cares, the nostalgia of childhood, the joy of simple things, all on the sons of Latin America and the energy that characterizes this musician who leads her group through the Groove of her bass lines.
Her musical openness, her talent and her taste for improvisation allow him to sail through eclectic universes; Afro, Latin, jazz, Gypsy, folk, pop, Oriental music or contemporary music, and thus collaborate in various projects and with major artists in France and abroad.
