A monthly series curated by RDL+, Bay Area Bridges celebrates the Bay Area music scene, with Oakland as its launch pad. This month, RDL+ teams up with Spanish fusion group Canastéreo, after meeting and playing with them while on tour in Spain, summer of 2017. Based in Sevilla, Canastéreo will take us on a musical trip to the deep roots of flamenco and beyond, bringing with them influences from all over the world, and always rooted in the sounds of Andalucía.
With their 2014 debut album, Más P’alla Va, RDL+ is building an original sound that embodies the members’ collective ideas, inspirations, and histories. RDL+ is Ruthie Dineen on keys, Doug Lee on bass, Luis Salcedo on guitar, plus(+) the Bay Area's best up-and-coming musicians. The group focuses on writing and playing original compositions, while taking both lyrical and open improvisations on the pieces. While maintaining an aesthetic stemming from traditional jazz, the group experiments with odd meters, timbre, form, and melodic ideas. Nonetheless, the exploratory nature of the group is always rooted in the essence of the composed or arranged pieces.
