Album Notes
The Barra Libre Percussion Trio is integrated by Maribel Pedraza, Kaoru Miyasaka, and Gabriela Orta. Each one of them has a wide professional trajectory in this family of instruments. They have walked through symphonic, popular, and contemporary music, and jazz.
Their participation in different projects within the arts such as dance, theater, and multimedia make them a creative ensemble, opened to new musical proposals.
The purpose of the trio is to disseminate and bring the percussion instruments closer to different audiences, showing their richness in timbre, rhythmic power, and the energy they can generate. The ensemble performs music of different genres: original for percussion, transcriptions and musical arrangements that provide the audience with a broad and innovative sound palette. As part of their goals, the ensemble promotes the composition of works for this endowment and disseminates pieces created by Mexican and foreign female composers, highlighting the participation of women in music.

Triciclo (Tricycle) is a musical project that represents a trip, a five-year journey, through which we have been creating and achieving music, sounds, and proposals for this percussion trio, that come from the discovery of an empathy that strongly interconnects us in a human and musical level.
This record means –simultaneously– a lot for each one of us. The fact that each one is part of the whole and that we could achieve, through this conjunction, our first discographic material is a response of a common goal: we value the fortune that from our own essences and spirits, diverse among them, each one of us had decided, with determination, to work in this project using our own talent, creativity, and love for percussion.
We are lucky to be part of this assembly and to be in the possibility of converging with other actors, accomplices of our –and now, also their– journey, so we make a first stop to thank our female composers, as well as our male composer, who offered us their work in a vote of confidence, given practically in the dark, convinced by our commitment of consolidating the presence of women in the percussion’s world, for the consciousness of the value that implies to create an environment, not only of sorority –which underlines many of our action routes and concept– but also for the equality sense in other global aspects: to provide voice to Mexican composers, with the purpose of widening the repertoire of this instrumental resources.

To the seven of them, we would like to thank the appreciation of our interpretative style in order to start and continue this path, that in the end, concluded in this musical encounter. The diverse compositional styles captured here make this album fresh and original.
Maribel, Kaoru, and Gaby joined heartbeats, working hours, music, and a lot of joy so that this journey would be a pleasant one. Luckily, the connections are infinite, constant, and synchronized... we feel that there is going to be ensemble and “Barra Libre” for everyone, for a long time. It sounds great, doesn’t it?

This album has two pieces that were specially commissioned for this project: Tricycle, by Patricia Moya, and Open bar, by Diana Syrse Valdés. The narrative of both pieces is contrasting; however, both include a trip, and with their titles, we propose one of the starting points of our own musical journey.
