Xerach Peñate presenta Tizziri


At an early age, Xerach Peñate Santana took professional courses studying classical percussion at the Music Conservatory of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and concurrently participated in a number of different musical groups & ensembles, the most notable being the ‘Joven Orquesta de Gran Canaria’ (Youth Orchestra), the ‘Orquesta Universitaria Maestro Valle de la ULPGC’ (University Orchestra) and the ‘Banda Municipal de Música de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Municipal Band).

When she was nineteen years old, she concentrated her training on modern music & jazz, with tuition by musicians like Enrique Fernández-Villamil & José Alberto Medina; and later continued her studies in Barcelona, at the ‘Escuela Superior de Música de Cataluña’ (Higher School of Music)(ESMUC) where she obtained her diploma in jazz drumming.

Currently, following a period of playing in different groups, she finds herself totally immersed in her own first disc, titled Tizziri, an original composition that flows between jazz, rock and hip-hop, but in which one can note & appreciate the composer’s roots, with hidden inclinations towards traditional Canarian songs.

Tizziri is an artistic show that combines music, poetry & electronics (using selective audio-visual means), featuring Xerach Peñate together with eight musicians. Tizziri searches for new sounds; the vocal & wind sections combine (clarinet, bass clarinet, contralto saxophone & flugelhorn) creating dialogues with a dynamic rhythmic base which demonstrates its traditional aspect as well as its highly intense electric sound. Various ‘textures’ intertwine keeping jazz as its musical base, yet delving into other styles, like rock, hip-hop & Latin music. Nuria Balaguer (vocal), Albert Abad (clarinet, contralto saxophone & chorus), Jairo Cabrera (bass clarinet, flugelhorn, vocal & chorus), Guillem Torà (electric guitar & chorus), Artashes Aslayan (piano & keyboards), Marta Bautista (contrabass, electric bass & chorus), Iñaki de la Linde (percussion & chorus) and Xerach Peñate (drums, percussion & chorus) form the musical line-up.

The work features poems by Leandro Santana, a rap number by Tanausú Santana, the visual aspect & design by photographer Daniel Gutiérrez and electronics by Belén Álvarez.
