Germán López is a master of the timple, the small five-stringed guitar native to the Canary Islands, a cousin in a family of instruments that includes the Venezuelan cuatro, the cavaquinho, the ukulele, and the charango. What has distinguished López’s career since its beginnings has been his approach, aiming at putting the timple on the global stage and exploring its possibilities in fusions beyond traditional music.
López, accompanied by his quintet and special guests, including Cuban singer Aymeé Nuviola, fresh from her performance at the Latin GRAMMYs, and legendary percussionist Sammy Figueroa, will perform at Miami Dade College’s Koubek Center on Friday, November 18. This evening, López will present his new album, Alma (Virgin Music), his fifth under his own name but the first on an international label. This release on a global platform marks a new stage in López’s career and in his idea of continuing to expand the projection of the instrument.
