Edith Tamayo –

When Edith Tamayo moved from Sinaloa,
Mexico to Copenhagen some time ago, the continental music scene
surely gained something valuable. It's been a long road though.
Edith grew up in sea side town Mazatlan on the coast of the
pacific, and in Culiacan closer to the foothills of
mountains further inland. An upbringing with a strong social
consciousness, and with both legends and superstition, and not least
the local music.
As a young girl she won singing competitions
on TV, before she received a scholarship and as a 17-year-old went
to the Bellas Artes Academy in Mexico City and sang all over the
country. Yet she wanted to go to Europe and ended up in Sweden where
she studied classical singing before she again returned home and
worked in the Opera in the capital.
For just a few years
now, she has lived in Copenhagen.
Edith Tamayo music, that
combines the traditional Mexican and indigenous music. Edith also
can be heard in a more intimate setting with a small group of
musicians, has a special love for performing for children, and is
constantly developing her music working together with musicians from
different musical backgrounds. The songs - a mixture of traditionals
and Tamayo's material - all have a feather-light touch, airy and
full of colour. Most of the largely acoustic stuff is in a
life-affirming up-tempo Latin style. The guitars are bright and
shimmery, and the percussions, although trimmed down, are naturally
rich and present.
Coincidencias is Edith Tamayos new album
2017 together with Trio “Domison”, Ernesto Manuitt, Yasser Pino,
Elvio Bravo and the talented musician Eliel Lazo, the album includes
some of her own compositions.
With a voice that is as clear
as a bell, accompanied by her hot band Tamayo brings with this
record a lot of joyful music and some melancholy. It's a sound that
is impossible not to move to, or not to be moved by.
