Last Thursday, October 27, the City of Knowledge Ateneo enjoyed another musical presentation worthy of the events offered inside such a prestigious auditorium.
Acclaimed guitar player Hernán Romero, and his international band, showcased a perfect repertoire of Latin rhythms, classical music and jazz. With a superb coordination that ended up in perfect musical arrangements, Hernán showed the audience why he is considered a genius with the guitar. His smooth melodies unleashed a pure passionate frenzy, creating a wild and complex music, which made his concert a complete event to all present.
Influenced by the traditional gypsy flamenco, music from the Middle East and the people of the Mediterranean, Romero proved he is a composer of passionate, sensual and sophisticated music, which dazzled the Ateneo at the City of Knowledge.
The first time I heard Romero play, I didn’t think about technique or repertoire because I was so completely absorbed in the experience. In a few moments I realized that I was not just listening but participating, his music made me feel like we were interacting. Romero was the maestro conducting and orchestrating my responses and this was a magical feeling that I’ve rarely experienced” --Nile Rodgers
