Duo ESSE (Er Eda & Sieger Simon)

Two artists with different backgrounds in any sense is a piece of evidence for both of them; their difference can only make them complementary.

On the contrary, they chose to show the potential of standing side by side, without compromise or adaptation.

Montes Diego & Biffarella Gonzalo

“For the communion of these worlds I had to look for someone who enjoyed a vast compositional experience and who had worked in these worlds. My friend and composer Gonzalo Biffarella would be the tinder and, later, the bonfire. The project had its origin and development, thanks to the joint work between Anahí Montes, Gonzalo Biffarella and Diego Montes, we navigated between peace and storm, between the apparent tranquility of understanding and seeing how those meanings are diluted in the musical plot to later return back.” – Diego Montes
