Back to 4 (2022)

Back to 4 is the quintessence of C4 Trío. It is the ensemble in its most genuine version, as it has never been shown before. It is the volatil cuatros of Jorge Glem, Edward Ramírez and Héctor Molina, it is the gluing bass of Rodner Padilla, it is the explosion of musicality that is generated every time this quartet with the name of a trio gets together on stage.

Back to 4 is a journey to elemental number 4: 4 limbs, 4 creators. It is the cuatro, that kind of little 4-string guitar present in the vast majority of traditional Venezuelan rhythms, taken to the maximum of its expressive possibilities.

Loaded with new instrumental music, the seventh album of their catalog also represents the continuity of a sonic exploration that began in 2005 in Caracas, Venezuela, and that generated one of the most exciting artistic proposals of that South American country that looks towards the Caribbean and the Atlantic, directly absorbing copious and heterogeneous influences.

The Latin Grammy-winning and Grammy-nominated group has always sailed universal waters on their ship built with Venezuelan wood. He has never stopped experimenting with the encounter of joropo, Venezuelan merengue and other genres grown at home, with jazz and world music. Works like this are consequences of that curiosity.

Warning: There is no antidote to counteract the effect of this product. The C4 Trío in high concentrations is extremely beneficial for health. - Gerardo Guarache Ocque
