Rio Duende

Rio Duende


Picture if you will, under the starry sky of the Southwest desert, a liquid tide of warm ocean reverb washing over the pulse of sultry latin rhythm. A wide river of inspiration. This sensation is Rio Duende.


Select Latin and Jazz; Sublime Surf and Rock: Rio Duende is channelled composer/guitarista Geoffrey Escandon, a west coast conjurer, bent on bringing the Pacific ocean anywhere he sees fit. Rio Duende is a celebration of rhythm and reverb.
