Dichos y Hechos. 03/ 2007 Revista Cultural. Neuquén, Argentina. “Holy Moseño”
“The son of the wind, Pablo Salcedo, after opening many ears, feelings and unconventional ways with his independent solo album “Mas alla del pensamiento” (Beyond Thoughts), invites us again to travel the space of wind weavers. This time it is through “Moseño Sagrado” (Holy Moseño) that we get to give oxygen to our fragmented interior by the sharp stalactite of winds. It leads us to acknowledge our tribal, profound, desperate howls. Holy Moseño brings us information about what we once were and some clue on how to return to that…

Tonight Pablo Salcedo will bring his passion for Andean instruments to its furthest with the presentation of his second solo album “Holy Moseño”. This is a very personal tribute to one of the most spiritual sounds born in Bolivia. After his first solo album “Mas alla del pensamiento” (Beyond thoughts), where he combined his particular studies of a group of Andean wind instruments, he works now with only one, the Moseño. He uses a personal method for performing which he has prepared for a year now. His first contact with the instrument happened in 1994 when Pablo became a member of Markama. He could then collect several moseños and search for its slippery origins throughout the tours the band made. Pablo was surprised by the amazement moseño created over a group of Ohio State University students who, after hearing it at a venue, asked him to play it in a protest against the war in Iraq. There, in front of a crowd, the sound of moseño aroused the pacifist spirit of a whole culture. Salcedo decided to dedicate a full album to moseño and therefore be a pioneer since his studio recording has no antecedent.

Mendoza, Argentina A transparent album By Pablo Pereyra View full article at: http://www.losandes.com.ar/nota.asp?nrc=370694&nprt=1#Scene_1 “Moseño Sagrado” continues and goes deeper into the way Salcedo’s previous album “Mas alla del pensamiento” began. That is to say, long nights for improvisation following a cutting edge method. The album is not divided into songs, but into moments. The 10 tracks do not follow any conventional song structure. Improvisation defined the length and characteristics of each track. Conceptual questions such as “Can I observe without naming?”, “Can mind stop comparing?” or “Can I hold you?” are explored in each track.

Last Friday, one of Markama members showed his composer skills with a new material inspired by improvisation captivating those who went to the Teatro Independencia.
”Mas alla del pensamiento” (“Beyond thoughts”) is a direct trip, with no words or interruptions, towards prehispanic indigenous roots. It is a mix of a large quantity of wind instruments that combine wood, leather, ceramics and cane complemented with percussion”.
“his mystical show went through oniric, disturbing, melancholic atmospheres, going from euphoria to peacefulness with the use of silence and several sounds as part of the performance. His daring and inspired work is a personal piece that breaks with conventional structures and explores the instrumental aesthetics of the Andes with a clear conceptual evocation of the high spiritual universe aroused by the sounds of these mountains”.
”Well known artists such as Pepe Sanchez, Quique Oesch, Eduardo Pinto and others as well as pictures of landscapes and indigenous faces complemented the show. A great care put into the lights and shapes helped to create a coherent general concept.”
Previously perfomed last summer in front of 15000 people at the Americanto festival, this personal and awarded show marked the height and potencial of this musician from Mendoza who keeps stepping forward.

“First of all, Pablo Salcedo was bright in the performance of the difficult Concert of Carl Nielsen, the Danish national composer. The concert, often performed, looked new because of the contribution of this talented young intrumentist, who has a wide sound range, tune, technique, and expressivity with no flaws.”
