We are sorry to report that Darol Anger has had a family emergency and will not be able to perform this weekend.  We will still have a great concert with Germán and Antonio though!

Brilliant young star of the timple, a diminutive 5-stringed instrument intrinsic to music of the Canary Islands, Germán López touches audiences with original instrumental music from the Canary Islands. Germán harnesses the grit of Spanish flamenco, the structure of West African rhythms, the flourishing spirit of jazz, and an innovative 21st century approach to performing "island music." His principal instrument is one of the grandfathers of the ukelele, and part of the same instrumental family that includes the cavaquinho, the cuatro and the charango. Germán López's music has been praised for "entrancing" performances of "delicately rippling notes" (Huffington Post), notes that flow from musical traditions uniting Spain, Africa, and the New World.

Germán López was born in Gran Canaria in 1982. His musical studies begin at an early age, where he was accepted to study at the Conservatory of Music in Las Palmas at seven years of age. In the conservatory, Germán studied piano, music theory, and jazz studies. At the ripe age of ten years, he began to concertize publicly, notably collaborating with legendary timple virtuoso José Antonio Ramos. It was around this time that Germán developed a keen interest in the timple and other traditional Canary Island instruments. In addition to duo and ensemble concerts, Germán has also collaborated with symphony orchestras, including the Philharmonic Orchestra of Gran Canaria in the "Teresa de Bolívar" festival. As both an educator and performer, Germán López has been awarded public prizes by the government of the Canary Islands on several occasions.

Germán will be accompanied by guitarist Antonio Toledo. Antonio Toledo was born in San Fernando (Andalusia, Spain), and began playing at the age of nine. At 16, he began to study classical music at the Manuel de Falla Conservatory in Cadiz, Spain, during which he developed a keen interest in Brazilian music, jazz, and flamenco.

Antonio Toledo has performed and collaborated with many illustrious musicians, including Joan Manuel Serrat, Javier Ruibal, Joaquín Sabina, Ana Belén, Chano Domínguez, Antonio Serrano, Jorge Pardo, Andreas Prittwitz, José Mercé, and many more. As an arranger and producer, he has worked on numerous albums in his career, including two under his own name.
