About the Event

Spanish musicians, Marina Albero and Luis Gallo are truly captivating  performers.  Albero’s piano and hammered dulcimer playing is an  absolute celebration of life. Her spirited performances are intelligent,  uplifting, and delightfully engrossing. Gallo is a creative flamenco  player and composer that engages with the audience through his precise  rhythms and passionate phrasing. Together they have crafted a unique  repertoire of original and traditional sounds along with some jazz,  Latin and flamenco standards. The evening will be lively and heartfelt.

Marina Albero, Bio 

Based in Seattle since 2015, Marina Albero is a pianist, composer, and educator.  Albero deftly draws on a lifetime of music tradition, from her native Barcelona in classical and early music as well as flamenco, to Cuba and Son Cubano, to American jazz. Her celebrated triple album “A life soundtrack” contains an all improvised volume called “Agua” of solo and duos with Hans Teuber as well as originals and jazz standards. Albero was the recipient of the Golden Ear Award as Emerging Artist of 2018 and she has been awarded as best instrumentalist and best record of 2019. In 2020 she started The Quarantine Sessions as a space for female artists to share and perform together during pandemic times; this initiative has been recently awarded with a Golden Ear “Community in Action” award. In 2021 she was the Resident Artist at the Earshot Jazz Festival where she presented four different concerts that received a great and warm response by the audience and critics. She has performed and recorded with renowned national and international artists such as Chano Dominguez, Jeff Johnson, Thomas Marriot, Ganesh Rajagopalan, Thomas Marriot, Charlie Porter, D’Vonne Lewis, Rizzo, Glen Velez, L’Arpeggiata, Carlos Saura and many others. Albero is currently piano professor at Cornish College of the Arts and adjunct faculty at Western Washington University.

Luis Gallo, Bio 

On screen, you can hear Luis’ unique guitar skill in commercial  television, documentaries for National Geographic, and in productions of  the multi-Grammy award winning director and composer, Hans Zimmer. In  addition to his personal musical accomplishments, Luis has been bestowed  with several award nominations such as a Latin Grammy 2015, and a 2016  Danish World Music Award.

Gallo’s career has taken him touring worldwide for many guitar projects.

In  shows, he shares a unique interaction with the audience, combining  story-telling  with a top notch, committed performance. His last  project, “The Pathways of Guitar”, has been selected as one of the  premier flamenco guitar shows exhibited in flamenco Festivals. Among his  most popular selections are “Flamenco Viene del Sur” (Granada) or  “Noches en los Jardines del Real Alcázar” (Sevilla) or the 300 years  anniversary of Spain In U.S, where he also was cultural ambassador of  the event in the city of San Antonio, Texas in 2018.  Furthermore, Luis  is guitar Ambassador for the famed Canadian guitar company, Godin  Guitars.
