About the Musicians
Nacho Arimany is more than a multi-instrumentalist with a special ear for world percussion, he’s a translator, and a channel for creating dialogue between different cultures. This dialogue is spoken through rhythm. Arimany says this language is universal and spoken by all of us. When he’s on stage, whether during his solo performances or when he’s joined by an improv jazz trio, Arimany is surrounded by his pallet of instruments. He sees them all as different colors that paint the picture of humanity. “I always play two instruments at a time, it is really rare that I’m only playing one instrument, so I’m putting in dialogue these instruments that come from different cultures,” he said. “So I really see myself like this bridge and translator between cultures, colors and rhythms.”
