John Erban

The International sensation of the Tango scene! Valentina Diaslara valentina@salsamundi.com

At International Salsa Magazine, we believe that what makes someone special is their passion and love for what they do and bring to others. This is the case with John Erban, the Venezuelan tango dancer and instructor that we had the pleasure to meet this month.

John is based in Geneva, Switzerland. He is preparing his next European tour in order to give Tango classes, shows, festivals and more. With an interesting beginning, this Venezuelan left an engineering career to follow a passion that was growing inside of him: Dance. The Colombian inuence in his family was very important to him to take that step into dance. His beginning was centered in a more Latin/Caribbean style, starting with salsa and Venezuelan folklore. After many years of mastering these styles, giving shows and performances, John met the style that changed his life, Tango. Thanks to the Tango Caracas Company, this dancer started a career in the Tango scene and in 2006, after only three months of practicing with his partner in that moment, John went to the worldwide Tango Championship in Argentina and the couple could passed to the seminal, something remarkable for a Venezuelan contestants couple. Later, in 2007, they made it to the nals and in 2008 the couple took part again of the contest and won the 3rd place.

After that, many doors opened for John in the Tango scene around the world, making a dance tour in TokyoJapan, and different countries of Asia. This was a learning process for John in so many ways, because he had the opportunity to meet so many different cultures, languages, perspectives and, overall, dances.

He returned to Argentina in 2009, this time with the amazing dancer Clarissa Sanchez as his new dancing partner, but it was just until 2011, the year of victory, where they were tied in the rst place with a Colombian couple After this, John's career just got off the ground, working and dancing a lot in Argentina, having tours in United States and Europe. Currently, John is working by himself in Switzerland, organizing a big Milonga once a month in Geneva, and being invited to jury, perform, Dj and teach in Festivals and other cultural events around the world. In November begins his next European tour, with conrmed countries as France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland and the U.K.

But having a lifestyle where you have to travel worldwide makes difcult being near to your family and the ones you love and that is a lesson that John has learned after many years of working hard. "When you travel like this, you have to internalize a state of separation, and it has been very hard for me, but I'm still working on that". Nevertheless, John is making all to have his son with him, and being close with his family as much as he can. Future goals for John are continue traveling, working and dancing. He is also working for next year in developing his own clothing line, videoclip production and online tango lessons through his new website. Travel gives him a great opportunity to learn and see all types of languages and cultures. He also wants to create a dance academy and dance company, in order to make festivals, workshops and more.

When we asked him what is the thing that he loves the most about Tango, he says that is the energy that you want to give and show to others, the energy that you want your partner feel, the sensations, the moves… He knows that Tango is a very strict style with specic rules and it requires a lot of discipline, but he is innovating the style, giving it his signature and personality, and that is what he wants to develop, a new way of Tango style that could captivate anyone.

John talks about Venezuela, its current situation, Europe, the people he's helping and more, but the most remarkable and beautiful thing is how passionate he is talking about Tango and dance in general. When you talk with him, the desire of learn to dance starts growing, he's just inspiring.

John Erban is such and unique person, with so much talent and vibrant personality. To know more about him and his work, check his page https://www.facebook.com/Johner bantango/ www.johnerbantango.com Instagram y Twitter: @johnerbantango Email: johnerbantango@gmail.com

Finally he gives us tips for beginners in Tango and in dance in general. “Stay humble, always. Ego is an obstacle that every dancer has to defeat. Also you need to have discipline, learning Tango and every dance is like to learn a new language, you have to practice a lot and put all you effort to achieve your goal”. The best advice from a professional.

VOZ A VOZ (Bachata Musicians

Dancer and Choreographer)

- 2-time Latin Grammy nominees) Dominican group Voz a Voz is born of a world that most of their peers only try to emulate. Formed in Santo Domingo by three youths of poor economic class and single parent households, a fact which they are not shy about sharing, the young men that make up the vocal trio are Gilberto Cesar D'Oleo ("Gio"), Ammy Yatniel Acosta ("Ammy") and David Leonardo Rosario Pimentel ("David").

Nayara Nuñez was born and raised in Havana, Cuba. She started dancing at the age of 7 with rhythmic gymnastics then joined the national school of arts in Cuba when she was 12 years old. After receiving her Bachelor's degree in Modern Dance and Cuban Folkloric Dance, Nayara began working as a professional dancer in the National Cuban Modern Dance Company for 5 years doing work in theatre and in lm.

International Salsa Magazine- OCTOBER 2017

The trio was discovered performing in the Hotel Bavaro in Santo Domingo by a record producer from the Urban Box Ofce label. Inspired by the rhythms and melodies of their native island, the young men created a new "R&B" that means Rhythm and Bachata. They craft soulful, urban inuenced three-part vocal arrangements in a style that is as much Dominican born as U.S. inspired. They have made a commitment to donate a signicant portion of their earnings to benet the poor and promote equal distribution of relief to people from underprivileged backgrounds like themselves. In addition, Urban Box Ofce has committed to donate a portion of sales from their debut CD, En Presencia del Futuro, to UNICEF.

40 años de El Trabuco Venezolano Un Merecido Homenaje a Alberto Naranjo y a sus músicos Teatro Teresa Carreño. Caracas, Venezuela Agosto 21 al 25, 2017 Ana Rosa Massieu / ana@salsamundi.com Colaboración y Fotografías de Lysbeth Weffe

International Salsa Magazine- OCTOBER 2017


www.salsamundi.com

Del 21 al 25 de agosto, en el Teatro Teresa Carreño (TTC), en Caracas, tuvo lugar el Homenaje al maestro Alberto Naranjo por sus 57 años de vida artística, y a la agrupación de su creación El Trabuco Venezolano por sus 40 años de fundada. Con largo tiempo de preparación y mucho cariño de por medio, como decía en el programa de mano y se percibía en el ambiente, el evento contó con la producción general de Franklin Rojas, la Fundación Grupo Madera y la Fundación Teatro Teresa Carreño. Más que una orquesta, El Trabuco Venezolano ha sido un auténtico movimiento de la salsa venezolana nacido de la iniciativa de Alberto Naranjo, veterano baterista y arreglista que ha paseado el ocio por las más diversas tendencias y escuelas de la música popular del Caribe, contando siempre con el apoyo directo del productor musical, Orlando Montiel(1).

Fue en una conferencia recital que dictaron César Miguel Rondón y Domingo “El Flaco” Álvarez en el Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Caracas, en agosto del año 1977, cuando debutó ante el público El TrabucoVenezolano(2). De inmediato se convirtió en el proyecto musical más acabado e interesante que conociera la ciudad de Caracas hasta ese entonces. Alberto Naranjo lo organizó bajo el concepto de una big band con la idea de desarrollar una propuesta particular que se diferenciara de sus similares en el resto del Caribe, con una sonoridad puente entre la salsa, el jazz, el funk y lo venezolano. Con siete discos editados, dos de ellos en vivo con el grupo Irakere de Cuba, y habiendo pasado más de un centenar de intérpretes por sus las, El Trabuco, más que un grupo en términos convencionales, ha sido un espacio de descarga y encuentro para los músicos locales, al tiempo que la mejor de las escuelas para muchos de ellos. Cuenta además entre sus logros, haber motivado el ambiente salsero caraqueño del momento, imponiendo un alto estándar que inuyó en la formación de mejores orquestas de salsa, aparte de crear,en denitiva, una marca sonora caraqueña propia(3).

Venezuela / Singers & groups

Las actividades de este nutrido homenaje arrancaron el lunes 21 con los conversatorios en el Platillo Protocolar del TTC: "Historia en la salsa de Venezuela" con Franklin Rojas y "Hera & Pablo, el baile de salsa a lo venezolano"; el martes 22, el conversatorio de Cheo Guevara sobre "Alberto Naranjo, y su huella histórica" y el foro "La producción de contenidos salseros en la radio alternativa" moderado por Zulay Millán. Así continuaron durante toda la semana. Se realizaron varios talleres, entre ellos, "La anación en la percusión" dictado por Nicolás Monterola y "Percusión latina" a cargo del profesor Frank Márquez. También en el lobby de la planta baja del TTC se presentaron los siguientes conciertos: Caracas Legends Ensamble, con su homenaje a Eddie Palmieri, la Orquesta Salsarría, Grupo Madera, Mundito y su Orquesta La Celestial, The Big Band de San Agustín y la Orquesta Carlín.

Grupo Madera

El plato fuerte de esta semana de merecido reconocimiento fueron los conciertos del Trabuco Venezolano en la sala Ríos Reyna del 24 y 25 de agosto, presentados por Zulay Millán y José Gregorio Acero. Aunque con una sala no completamente llena y recordando otras épocas de esplendor de un TTC que recibía a las estrellas del espectáculo de todas partes del mundo, disfrutamos de dos noches de conciertos memorables, sabrosos, animados y didácticos, con un escenario repleto de grandes músicos y un Alberto Naranjo pletórico, recorriéndolo y jugueteando más que dirigiendo a los integrantes de la gran banda. Con lo mejor de los músicos y cantantes más conocidos de Venezuela en el género, con algunos de los miembros originarios de esta agrupación y nuevos valores pudimos deleitarnos en un exquisito derroche de salsa, jazz y funk, de tres horas de duración cada día.

“El maestro iba narrando las historias de los diferentes temas que interpretaban...” Los músicos integrantes de El Trabuco Venezolano 2017, presentes en los conciertos del 24 y 25 de agosto, fueron: Alberto Lazo (piano), José "Mortadelo" Soto (bajo), William Vásquez (tres), William Mora (tumbadoras), Frank Márquez (timbal), Franklin Rojas (bongó), Hugo Olivero (saxo), Eduardo "Mondy" Dávila (saxo), Manuel Barrios (saxo), Irvin Blanco (saxo), Edwin Ruiz (saxo), Adrián Suárez (trombón), Eliel Rivero (trombón), Pedro Carrero (trombón), Franklin Moreno (trombón), Oscar Mendoza (trombón), Vicente Freijeiro (trompeta), Rafael Rey (trompeta), Gustavo Aranguren (trompeta), José "Cheo" Rodríguez (trompeta), Noel Mijares (trompeta), Edgar "Dolor" Quijada (voz), Troy Purroy (voz), José Luis Peña (voz), Yeci Ramos (voz), Arturo Guaramato (voz). El maestro iba narrando las historias de los diferentes temas que interpretaban, haciendo referencia a que sus músicos eran escogidos por meritocracia, compartiendo con la audiencia y mandando a callar a alguno en más de una ocasión, en tono jocoso, eso sí. Nos recordaba que no se dedican sólo a la salsa y en algunas piezas donde no cantaban, hizo hincapié en que eran instrumentales y que nos podían servir para que voláramos nuestra imaginación y soñáramos. La gran experiencia de esta reunión de músicos que ha sido El Trabuco Venezolano se vio reejada en un repertorio de 13 temas, entre originales, emblemáticos y estrenos, que nos regalaron.

Alberto Naranjo y Noel Mijares

Comenzaron con los temas “Yo Soy La Rumba” (Marcelino Guerra) con la voz solista de Troy Purroy y un solo de timbal de Frank Márquez, “Bravo Rumbero” (José “Cheo” Navarro) cantado por Edgar “Dolor” Quijada, “La Negra Tomasa” (Guillermo Rodríguez Fiffe) en la voz de Arturo Guaramato, “Tres Días”, tema original de Chucho Valdés y cedido a El Trabuco, cantado por José Luís Peña, con la participación de los bailarines Hera y Pablo. A esta altura ya toda la audiencia había entrado en calor, y hasta hubo una pareja del público que bailó en el pasillo desde que el concierto empezó hasta el nal, los dos días.

Venezuela / Singers & groups Continuó la noche con la emblemática "Almendra" (Alberto Barroso). Este tema arreglado por Naranjo para Arturo Sandoval hace 46 años, contó con la magistral participación de Noel Mijares -Venezuela Big Band Jazz, Desorden Público- en la trompeta, interactuando con gran complicidad con el maestro. Siguió con un estreno, "Alna's Mambo" composición instrumental, subliminal tal como la describió Naranjo. El concierto continuó con "Gongo Blues" (Eduardo Cabrera), tema en el cual se destacan los extraordinarios solos de Eliel Rivero en el trombón, el de Gustavo Aranguren en la trompeta, Manuel Barrios en el saxofón y Alberto Naranjo nos complació tocando el timbal. Siguió con el instrumental "El Ojo del Huracán", un latin jazz combo, que fue escrito a principios de los 70 y todavía suena raro, dijo el maestro Naranjo. Luego con el tema "Oye como va" (Tito Puente) se prendió la rumba, encendieron las luces de la sala y casi nadie se pudo mantener sin pararse y bailar. En el tema "El Hijo del Sonero" (Ricardo Quintero) cantó Yeci Ramos, en "El Cumaco de San Juan" (Francisco Deln Pacheco), Arturo Guaramato y en "Compañeros" (Ricardo Quintero), Juan José Conde, estos tres temas fueron acompañados por los tambores del Grupo Madera. "Imágenes Latinas" (Bernardo Palombo - Andy González), fue el tema escogido como nal, una pieza que se ha convertido en objeto de culto entre los melómanos, el público salsero y los amantes del jazz latino, según las palabras del conocedor José Orellán.

International Salsa Magazine- OCTOBER 2017

Contó con la extraordinaria participación de Adrián Suárez en el solo de trombón y de guarura, y la interpretación del sonero Edgar "Dolor" Quijada. En el concierto del viernes 25, El Trabuco Venezolano y su creador fueron declarados PATRIMONIO CULTURAL DE LA NACIÓN por el Instituto del Patrimonio Cultural (IPC) y el Ministerio del Poder Popular de la Cultura de Venezuela.

Con la esperanza de que esta experiencia se pueda repetir en otros teatros del país y del mundo, felicitamos a los organizadores, a Alberto Naranjo y a los músicos de El Trabuco Venezolano por haber recibido tan merecido reconocimiento como Patrimonio Cultural de la Nación.

Goce Pagano Un Icono Histórico de la Salsa en Bogotá Por: José Pérez

Si de historia se reere no podemos dejar pasar por alto el principal icono de la Salsa en Bogotá, como no hacerlo si hablamos de 39 años de tradición, todo comenzó en la década de 1978 cuando surge de la mano de … un espacio orientado a la Salsa en una ciudad donde no era tan normal este ritmo, como quizás sí lo era en Cali o Barranquilla, para ese entonces los discos de acetato, el

International Salsa Magazine- OCTOBER 2017

vinil, llego a ser el elemento número 1 que hacia bailar a esta capital, caso que increíblemente se mantiene hasta la fecha. Aquí en el llamado Goce, podemos deleitarnos con una importante colección de discos de la época más importante de la salsa, la década de los 70, que para impresión de muchos son los que todavía ponen el ritmo en este local.


www.salsamundi.com

Por su gran tradición es común conseguir encuentros de coleccionistas, foros o conversatorios con grandes personalidades, por ello, no solo te llama a bailar y disfrutar de la buena música, también es un rincón para aquellos que hacen moda la historia de la salsa. En mi visita pude disfrutar del Joe Arroyo, un coctel que nos muestra los sabores y colores de este bello país unido al tan conocido ritmo del icono de la Salsa en Colombia. El Goce abre sus puertas viernes y sábados desde las 7:00pm con un formato bien contemporáneo y actual a su vez, paredes naranja, velas, chimenea, mobiliario en madera y cuero te llama a un espacio íntimo y de gran calidez, lleno de ritmos latinos y que permite en el centro de techo ingreso de la luz de la luna.

Por todas las razones mencionadas no podemos dejar de disfrutar de un espacio tan lleno de historia, ritmos y sabores como este, podemos acercarnos en la diagonal 20-A # 0 - 82, en la localidad de Santa Fé, bien cerca de la estación Aguas del transmilenio, únete a las raíces de la salsa y no dejes de solicitar tus más conocidos temas, el Goce Pagano seguro te complacerá en esa hermosa velada latina.
