Having worked with the award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, McCalla has made a name for herself as a solo artist with her refreshing and poetic vocals and unbridled talent.

Join the incomparable Edmar Castañeda as he invites us to travel with him to countries such as Colombia, Venezuela, and Argentina — all through the power of his unparalleled talents on the harp. It’s almost impossible to take your eyes off of Castañeda as he shows off his wondrous dexterity and infectious passion that resonates in each pluck of the strings.

“Listening to Castañeda combine intricate, bop-inspired finger-picking and independent, grooving bass lines rooted in the Afro-Cuban tradition with dramatic, percussive chords, it’s easy to see why so many people are dazzled — his sound is orchestral in scope.” — All About Jazz

“The Omer Quartet played as if the ink were still wet on the page. The Quartet made it seem as if Haydn was not some bust on the piano, but a living, breathing composer. [It was an] invigorating interpretation, [played] with a sense of discovery and adventure, but also with considerable finesse.” — San Diego Union Tribune
