Raíces: An Extension of Big Band de Canarias’ Musical Journey Underpinned by Kike Perdomo

Guided by accomplished saxophonist, talented composer and respected music educator Kike Perdomo, Raíces seeks to foster the evolution of the established process of music study and creativity. This process has been in motion for a decade and a half through the distinctive works presented by Big Band de Canarias (BBDC). A key endeavor of the initiative is to breathe new life into our music, highlighting the rhythm and honoring the most captivating melodies.

The goal is to arrange and modify these elements to perfectly complement an extensive ensemble set up, mirroring that of a large orchestra or big band. This lends an opportunity for audiences to experience and immerse in our rich and vibrant musical legacy.

Operating under the ‘world music’ banner, the BBDC delves into an array of genres that include folk, jazz, flamenco, South African folklore, and pop. While remaining grounded in tradition, the BBDC also has its sights firmly on the future.

Backed by some of the finest musicians in the Islands, the outfit seeks to showcase the sonic capabilities intrinsic to this style of music. In doing so, they aim to elevate its cultural significance and lend an updated relevance to its legacy.
