Biography

Sonora3 is a very peculiar group; It’s formed by a very different type of musicians, from different countries like Colombia, Chile and Denmark. This group has been in the north-european music scene since 2002. The group has played in different Festivals (Copenhaguen Jazz festival, Global Music Festival, Vestebro festival among others) ,toured in the Nordic music scene, and developed several influences of the south-American hidden-unknown music, like the Colombian “cumbia” or the carnival rhythms from the north of Chile. The group has developed a unique style integrating the languages of the common rock music combining it with sharp rhythm patterns and counterpointed textures and Spanish texts. The group was formed by the Danish bassist Martin Krogh, the Colombian composer Eblis Álvarez, the Danish Clarinetist Tine Vitkov, and the Chilean percussionist Paulo Villegas in the year 2002 to explore this interesting form of making music. Most of the musical language and compositions are bourne by the computer interactivity with the musicians. All the programming developing is done by the composer Eblis Álvarez, a Colombian who came to study in Copenhagen at the Royal Academy of music in the soloist composition class. There he met bass player Martin Krogh, and Chilean percussionist Paulo Villegas who already lived in the city. After one year of hard work the group asked the clarinetist Tine Vitkov, who is graduated from the Rhythmic Music Conservatorium in Copenhagen, to join the group. At this point the four musicians came with their first recording “Radiator(2005)” which anticipates the musical idiom to come of the band. The band continued exploring the possibilities of the electronics and developed a more sofisticated musical language in every maner.
The culmination of their work so far is their latest recording "Sonora3/Meridian Brothers" released in 2008
The album is sponsored by the "Dansk Musiker Forbund" (Danish Musicians Union) and is signed by the Colombian music collective/Record Label
“La Distritofónica”.
Currently the band tour every summer in different concert places in Denmark and Scandinavia since Eblis Álvarez, its singer and front man is working also developing different projects in his native country Colombia. Sonora3 is planning to record its second album in 2010, and it´s also planning a southamerican tour the same year.
