After receiving recognition from the Venezuelan music scene and the Latin Recording Academy, Rodrigo Solo celebrates the launch of his new album ‘No EstÃ¡s Solo’ (“You Are Not Alone”). For this new project, Solo put aside the distortion to create a much more universal album recorded with a group of top-notch musicians and acoustic guitars resembling the world of artists such as: Â Robbie Draco Rosa, Jorge Drexel and Damon Albarn.
“No EstÃ¡s Solo” is an expansive and unpredictable album. It is the product of the creative freedom of using ensembles, textures, and sounds. It’s cinematographic at times; the album’s musical content is in tune with this multifaceted project which includes genres such as: indie pop and pop alternative with a with hint of folk, Cuban son, and psychedelic.
Rodrigo reveals, “this is an album in which I was lucky enough to work with great musicians. I am extremely happy with the final result. It is a great artistic collaboration, a new challenge.”
Rodrigo Solo composed the album in its entirety with the exception of the tribute to Cayayo Troconis, “Alma Perpetua”, which was written by the iconic Venezuelan rock musician originating from the bands Dermis Tatu and Sentimiento Muerto. Solo also counted on the participation of a collection of up and coming as well as established Venezuelan musicians such as famed trumpeter Linda Briceno along with members of Viniloversus.
“No EstÃ¡s Solo” in addition to being the title of the album, is a campaign to support the fight to protect human rights in Venezuela. Rodrigo Solo and the NGO “Sin Mordanza” are the organizers of this campaign.
Next June 18th “No EstÃ¡s Solo” will be released worldwide exclusively on iTunes. That same day, Rodrigo will celebrate the release of his album with an exhibition of his works of art at the gallery El Autobus (2750 NW 3rd Ave, Suite 8 Miami FL 33127), in Wynwood at 7PM. The artworks that will be exhibited were inspired by the musical compositions of “No EstÃ¡s Solo”.
