Entrevista a Tambuco


La Odisea de Tambuco




What mesmerising creativity,! A Tour de Force of subtle and forceful artistry. The members of Tambuco are chameleons on dozens of instruments. Oh, to hear these performers in this music in actual concert!
Grammophone Magazine
The timpanist Ricardo Gallardo and his three Tambuco associates are kept busy, but even in pieces like "Xochipilli, an Imaginary Aztec Music" or the Partita for Solo Timpani, a sense of neatness hangs over such naturally theatrical opportunities.
Bernard Holland (The New York Times)
On this occasion Kronos Quartet was joined by  Mexico City percussion ensemble Tambuco. Very impressive!

Mark Swed (Los Angeles Times)

With the highest artistry, Tambuco illustrated a thousand hyper-inventive ways to create unorthodox sounds. They even drew pitches out  of seemingly non-pitch instruments. Don't miss the repeat tonight !
The music explored the outer dimensions of percussive sound, and the Cuarteto worked wonders with  myriad instruments and even the musicians' bodies (hands, wrists, fingertips, voices). Through all these multi-soundscapes, the Mexicans' exciting approach never sacrificed the music's  aesthetic meaning to their unmistakable technical virtuosity.

Cecelia Porter (The Washington Post)

Kronos were at their best working with Tambuco Percussion Ensemble from Mexico City, which added a thrusting integrity to the string quartet's music. Tambuco’s kettle drums, marimba and other mallet instruments were used on Silvestre Revueltas' "Sensemaya" and the encores, Margarita Lecuona's "Tabu" and Perez Prado's "Mambo en sax" -- though the Kronos members appeared to react with extra enthusiasm and exactness in the collaborative effort. Tambuco gave the music backbone, aiding the festive nature of the tunes that were already plenty perky to start.

Phil Gallo (Variety)

Pero las delicias del concierto del miércoles en el Teatro de la Ciudad tuvieron, además de la calidad indubitable del Kronos, una parte de verdadera delectación musical en la presentación de un agrupamiento camerístico de primer nivel mundial: el Cuarteto Tambuco, que en ese caso sí acertó en sus calificativos David Harrington, líder del Kronos, al anunciarlos: ''Please  welcome this terrific and wonderful and fantastic musicians: Tambuco".       Esos sí son chidos.

Pablo Espinoza, (La Jornada)

Great virtuosity and theatricality of Tambuco. Put Ben-Dor and her enthusiasms  together with players of this caliber and Santa Barbara could really produce a world-class festival..

Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

Percussões vindas do México encantaram Culturgest
Um concerto memorável é o mínimo que se pode dizer da actuação do quarteto mexicano. Criatividade à solta é o que se pode dizer dos Tambuco, que tratam os instrumentos de percussão com a dignidade de um “Stradivarius” (foi Gallardo quem garantiu não existir qualquer diferença entre eles). Ao virtuosismo de Tambuco, somavam-se pequenos momentos de ironia, que viriam a culminar nessa peça genial que é A dois, de Tim Rescala (Brasil). 

João Miguel Tavares, Diario de Noticias, Lisboa

Gran impacto sensorial el que dejan los ritmos de Tambuco, sin duda el mejor grupo de percusiones de este y otros territorios. Su música es tan potente, tan expansiva, tan exacta como los latidos del corazón. Hay fuerza, intuición y conocimiento de causa en este conjunto de percusionistas de talla internacional. Su actuación dejó el escenario de Bellas Artes cargado de energía.
