Discography


In 2006, the group definitely assumed the
name C4 Trio, thanks to the release of their first album which was under
the musical production of Aquiles Bez and was attended by a large group of
Venezuelan musicians, as Serenata Guayanesa, Rafael "Pollo" Brito,
Marina Bravo, Zeneida Rodrguez, Adolfo Herrera, Roberto Koch, Edwin Arellano
and Aquiles Bez himself. Quickly, the album became a music reference Venezuela
and soon became a double gold record for the number of copies sold.

This production's popularity soared C4 Trio,
allowing them intensively in the most prestigious halls of Venezuela and a
strong international agenda that has led in three editions -2005, 2006 and
2010-, the Venezuelan Sounds Festival, organized by the Embassy of Venezuela in
the United States, which included concerts at the Bolivar Hall in Washington,
Smithsonian Institution Building, The Castle and Kennedy Center in 2007,
Englands Salisbury Intertantional Art Festival 2007, and Bolivar Hall in
London in 2008, the Blue Hall of the Municipality of Montevideo, Uruguay,
Cultural Bay Market 2008 in Brazil, the World Music Festival in Colombia and
Barranquijazz 2010, the 3rd International Festival of Guitars Ecuador 2011, and
the International Festival Palafoxiano 2011 in Puebla, Mexico. Likewise, they
have shared the stage with a large number of national and international
artists, most notably Jorge Drexler, Soledad Bravo, Gilberto Santa
Rosa
, Rafael " Pollo " Brito, Chico Pinheiro, Anat Cohen Quartet
, Edmar Castaeda, Eddy Marcano, Juan Toms Martnez, Aquiles Baez, Alexis
Crdenas, Jos Alejandro Delgado, Cheo Hurtado, Gonzalo Teppa,
and Gualberto Ibarreto, among others.


            In
2009, C4 launches its second album, Entre Manos, which is accompanied
by a DVD where the band shows its performance in a live concert. Entre Manos
shows a more mature side of the group, its members include compositions and
performances as guests of Alexis Cardenas, Yonathan Gavidia, Jorge Torres,
Alejandro Delgado and Jos Padilla Rodner who from this year, begins to form a
definite part C4 playing bass, which has further enriched the musical approach
of the group, characterized by tackling a not so common repertoire for the cuatro,
featuring countless sound resources, adding to their performances a significant
percentage of improvisation.


            In
2011, C4 Trio was honored at the 43rd International Tournament of Joropo, in
Villavicencio, Colombia, as the best group in the category New format
Assemblies. Its work to the cultural promotion was also recognized with Aqules
Nazoa Award 2011 by the Libertador Municipality of Caracas.


            In
2012 they released their third album Gualberto + C4. A record
made in conjunction with the famous Venezuelan singer Gualberto Ibarreto,
was awarded three Pepsi Music Awards 2013 and was nominated as Folk Album at
the Latin Grammys 2013
.


            In
2013 is launched De Repente (Suddenly) by the newspaper El
Nacional, their fourth album, this time featuring Rafael "Pollo"
Brito.

Bio


The origin of C4 Trio is directly related to
the International Competition Siembra del Cuatro, produced by master Cheo
Hurtado
, in which Jorge Glem , Edward Ramirez and Hector Molina had excellent
performances in the 2004 and 2005 editions. And because of this, in November
2005, these three musicians were invited, along with a fourth cuatro player,
Rafael Martnez , to participate in a concert organized by the Foundation
Multifona. There, each would an perform of his solo work, but these musicians
spontaneously decided to duo, trio and quartet in the final closure. This
moment marked the genesis of this ensemble whose dominant figure is the
Venezuelan Cuatro.

From different cities of Venezuela, Jorge
Glem from Cumana, Hector Molina from Mrida and Edward Ramirez from Caracas,
converged in the Venezuelan capital to give way to one of the most important
musical events in recent years. In 2006, the group definitely assumed the name C4
Trio
, thanks to the release of their first album which was under the
musical production of Aquiles Bez and was attended by a large group of
Venezuelan musicians, as Serenata Guayanesa, Rafael "Pollo" Brito,
Marina Bravo, Zeneida Rodrguez, Adolfo Herrera, Roberto Koch, Edwin Arellano
and Aquiles Bez himself. Quickly, the album became a music reference Venezuela
