Incendio returns with electric addition
Submitted By Brask Concerts
Picture this: An exotic melody accompanies a desert caravan beneath a blazing sun. The sound of waves wash against a pristine South American beach. A lone flamenco guitar echoes through the cobbled streets of old Sevilla. And a lilting three quarter time rhythm conjures images of the rolling green hills of Ireland. This is the music of Incendio.
The name Incendio means fire in three languages, and that is how their performance plays. The band, simply put, is instrumental world music with a very lively upbeat tempo. The primary ÒvoiceÓ is the Spanish guitar, but other instruments are present in their recordings and performances such as the mandolin, bouzouki, violin, Celtic harp, bass, piano, and various ethnic percussion instruments. They have also recently added the electric guitar and brought out a driving tempo that fits it. Bringing the power and range of these instruments to their show allows them to add another layer to the fantastic music they bring. ÒWe have seen them perform since adding the electric dimension to their show and the crowd loved it. We did too,Ó says concert organizer Wayne Brask.
Liza CarbeÕs richly textured electric bass playing has a background in classical guitar training. JP DurandÕs Peruvian heritage shows up in his flamenco guitar work. Jim StubblefieldÕs European travels and training show in his Middle Eastern flavorings. Stubblefield and Durand are known for lightning-fingered dazzling twin-guitar attacks. From dreamy to exciting, from the Far East to the West Coast, from South America to the Pacific Northwest, their music takes you on a musical world tour.
Brask says they have seen Incendio perform at several local venues, such as San JoseÕs Music in the Night series, Mission San Jose Olive Festival, the Little Fox Theater in Redwood City (now Club Fox), and many times at Mission Coffee. They also performed at the BraskÕs home, IncendioÕs first house concert. ÒWe know a lot of entertainers, some become friends. Come hear our friends, let them become yours as well,Ó says Brask.
