Lead by Tatiana Castro Mejia, pianist, and poet who moved here just before the Pandemic, she brings her personal and cultural improv and free Jazz to Boston to express a unique “hemispheric” language of improvisation through Free-Jazz.

“…from her creative need to express from the music and from the word: Find(ing) paths that explore beyond the song. Explore in narration, storyteller. Let the word recite next to the music. Play with it from improvisation, and let it interact with the sound. Music and text. Text and music”. And Castro Mejia carries it out from three different perspectives: compositions with music and words, instrumental (with the music suggesting poetic figures) and narrated (where the voice is expressed musically)”. - El Intruo

From a very young age she always had an interest, a curiosity for the creative, to assemble and disassemble, mostly from the sound, but at times touching other languages: dance, writing, dramaturgy. Today, more than 20 years after having decided to dedicate her life to music, she walks a path where improvisation plays a leading role and she seeks to cross lines with dance and theater, with writing and poetry. She studied at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Bogotá, Colombia) where she graduated obtaining the title of "Master of Music with Emphasis in Jazz". Between 2005 and 2006 she studied with the Argentine pianist Ernesto Jodos in Buenos Aires, thanks to a scholarship granted by the Fernando Sor School of Music in Bogotá and the Buenos Aires School of Contemporary Music where she was a teacher (www.escuelademusica. org). Her professional artistic life began in Bogotá, but she has had a strong development in Buenos Aires, where she has lived for 15 years.

Tatiana Castro Mejía was born in Colombia. In 2004, she earned a scholarship to study with Ernesto Jodos and Rodrigo Domínguez. She played in Mair, Tekeye, Bogotaires and Proyecto de Música Contemporánea. She released Ciclos, her first album. She co-directs a music and dance collective improvisation project with dancer Aleema Curri. She leads a quintet that plays the music of Eric Dolphy.
