Pedro Menendez Fusion Ensemble
Estrellas del Sur

Considered a pioneering of the avant-garde fusion style in Argentina, PEDRO MENÉNDEZ is a gifted composer and multi-instrumentalist with an unique eclectic style of blending jazz elements, Latin American rhythms and contemporary classical music.

With a prolific discography and multiple live versatile projects, PEDRO MENENDEZ stands out for a vast local and international performance experience destined to keep growing: Argentina, Brasil, USA, Canada, Europe and Taiwan.

“VOYAGE THROUGH LATIN AMERICA" is the new coming conceptual work of the Argentine creator.
A piano based work including 20 pieces reinterpreting rythms of South America, followed each other on an imaginary journey through the continent and compilated on two different books of musical scores. Afro American, native and European adapted forms can be found on this work as a source of inspiration.

For Pedro Menendez, polyrhythm reinvents his latin side. And the blend between richness of composition and jazz virtuosity shows that originality and an unique personal style remain Menendez’s main qualities.
