Beledo: nu yawk fusion

Thanks to Red for spotting this one. A nice bit of fusion from Beledo,

Beledo is the epitome of excellent musical individuality and a profound example of the universality of jazz's presence and influence in every corner of our planet. His new recording, "Montevideo Jazz Dreams," exemplifies this and more." Stix Hooper

"BELEDO is considered a real myth among Uruguayan music connoisseurs," according to EL PAIS newspaper from Montevideo, Uruguay. Piano was Beledo's first instrument, however, he became a guitar hero in his late teenage years captivating audiences in Uruguay and Argentina.. Later on, his fusion effort of the early eighties in South America was noticed in the U.S. in articles for the upcoming talents in GUITAR PLAYER magazine and JAZZIZ magazine.

Recently in the US, he participated in Manolo Badrena's percussion instructional video explaining the different voices of the Afro-Uruguayan rhythm called Candombe, and performing a candombe fusion song on guitar with Manolo on percussion.
