IMAGA MONDO translates from Esperanto as “Imaginary World”.
On her debut release Leonor Falcón presents a concept album with pieces inspired by fantastic or mythological creatures from fables, literature and children’s books coming from diverse cultural backgrounds. Falcón delivers an eclectic outing full of psychedelia and intensity with concise compositions that have a lot of character and vibe.
For the date she enlisted a group of like minded peers in an ensemble of particular instrumentation. Christof Knoche on Bass Clarinet, Juanma Trujillo on Guitar and Juan Pablo Carletti on Drums. The group has a strong approach to the music and creates a myriad of interesting soundscapes and textures. Falcón manages to create an interesting mix of aesthetics ranging from Bebop, Rock, Avant Garde and Latin American music in a way that feels natural and honest.
As a violinist and improviser Leonor Falcón has had a truly interesting interdisciplinary career in New York city as a valuable addition in ensembles that are dedicated to Jazz, Avant garde, Latin and classical music such as Willie Colon’s band, Akua Dixon’s string quartet, Sirius Quartet and Karl Berger improvisers orchestra. She is also one of the founders of the Solar string quartet which has performed on many venues across New York backing some truly exciting performers such as Mario Castro, Joanna Wallfisch and Julien Hucq among others.
