ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pedro Menéndez is a brilliant Argentine composer and multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, winds, bandoneon, voice) wellknown for his unique and personal composition style blending jazz, Argentinian and Latin American Folk (tango, candombe, chacarera, zamba, bossa nova) and contemporary clasical influences.

Distinguished by a prolific instrumental discography (17 works), on “PETERS SONGS”, PEDRO MENENDEZ shows a different facet and goes deeper into the field of lyrics. Mystery of nature, human essence, cultural, social and political roots of South American continent are poetically reflected with beauty and simplicity. As a composer, MENENDEZ amazes with an incredibly rich work on harmonies and vocal arrangements and shows himself as an unique eclectic artist full of valuable proposals and restless quests on South American alternative musical expressions.

Part of the material included on the CD “PETER´S SONGS” was originally composed for the documentary film “Querida Mara, Cartas de un viaje por la Patagonia”, an Argentinian /German co-poduction directed by Argentinian well-known Director Carlos Echeverría. “Querida Mara, Cartas de un viaje por la Patagonia” (“Dear Mara, Letters from a journey around the Patagonia”), has been premiered on distinguished national movie theaters (Centro Cultural Gral. San Martín, Malba Museum) as well as on internacional European festivals.

With an extensive international live performance career destined to keep growing (Argentina, Brazil, US, Canada & Europe), PETER´S SONGS is one of the live musical projects that PEDRO MENENDEZ has been leading and featuring internationally with great success.
