Oscar Lopez at the Dream Cafe
Oscar Lopez Musician/Band
Saturday, June 17th
Oscar Lopez’s Latin guitar groove makes him a standout on the world music stage.
Born in Santiago, Chile, Oscar was encouraged by his father to play the violin and its close relative the mandolin, influencing his signature rhythmic playing style. He soon chose the nylon-string guitar as his “soul” instrument. Oscar’s infectious rhythms, guitar mastery and improvisational wit will make you marvel and definitely want to get up and dance. Speaking of which, Oscar has shared the stage with dancers from Alberta Ballet and with big bands like The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra with Spirit of the West. A two-time JUNO Award winner and multi-nominee, he continues to surprise and engage.
An independent artist again, Oscar Lopez’s latest release: “Apasionado”.
“Oscar Lopez is the only guitarist I know who can actually make an acoustic nylon string guitar scream. With the same instrument he produces tears and laughter in his audiences” – Martin Simpson, celebrated British Folk Guitarist
