One could write much about Guillermo Gregorio’s tone and intervallic figurations, the way he weaves his voice through the architecture of the piano and drums. Or Paula Shocron’s constantly replenishing imagination and volcanic energy, her humor and brilliance. (Side note: she’s a phenomenal dance improviser and when she can do both piano and dance in a single performance…this may be my favorite—another kind of Diálogo). One could write a lot about Pablo Díaz’ incisive drumming, the deep knowledge of the instrument on display every time he plays, and his curation of materials that generate unforeseen energies and environments (like a new form of weather) for others to move through. This is the music of three wise and very skilled musicians, not delivering an oration, preaching, advertising, not straining their voices, or being reduced to a whisper. It is not political music or music of witness in an overt sense, but given the context, conversing together in a open, relaxed, and imaginative way is itself political. It seems to me that this is part of a dialogue with history, and one hopes the world is listening.
