440 Gallery One Breath Rising presents Ruben Gonzalez

. April 2, 2018

To listen to the guitar-playing of Ruben Gonzalez is to enter a journey that crosses borders between distant places and spaces. South and North America, politics and poetry, pain and humor—Gonzalez’s sounds and lyrics are reflected in a world vision that includes politics and popular stories. His music echoes a vast set of influences from Latin American rhythms and genres, including jazz and rock.

Originally from San Juan, Argentina, Ruben composes and plays the guitar with a deeply personal and thought-provoking voice. In 2012, the American composer Philip Glass invited Gonzalez to showcase his musical ingenuity at the annual Tune-in Festival at the Park Avenue Armory. Gonzalez was joined on stage by singer-songwriter Zack Glass and Canadian fiddler Ashley MacIsaac in an afternoon of new compositions.

Ruben Gonzalez has recorded three CDs: Foto de mi Aldea (2006), La Libertad (2010), and I’m Working on Something (2015) a collection of original songs geared toward young people. He is currently working on recording a compilation of new compositions influenced by his native Argentinian folkloric rhythms and themes.
