Jhon Montoya: organic psychedelic tropical folk - Columbia

Jhon William Castaño Montoya, aka Montoya, is a Colombian violinist and composer. Its sound research led him to combine the academic path with electronic experimentation where he brings the scents of the Andean mountains within European views and at the same time collects harmonies from the folk tradition and tribal, inscribed in his DNA, to mix wisely with the European classical culture. His music is a stylish make-up, made of contrasts and new combinations, which manages to marry the wet sound colors deriving from Latin American culture with Western rationalism. Montoya builds an entire landscape, in which unfolds a story, a path in which his nostalgic strings combined with haunting tropical electro from his homeland create a futuristic and beautiful organic landscape.
