"GUARANI- Música Argentina para Big Band y Orquesta de Cámara" has its roots in the music indigenous to the natives of South America. In his interpretation, Gabriel Pérez traces this pre-columbian culture and transforms its soul into music. It tells the story of two legends handed down by the Guaraní Indians who traditionally cultivated a strong connection to nature. The legends are woven around "irupé", an imposing water lily, and the maté shrub, also known as the "green gold of the Indios". This tee-like beverage is shared amongst friends and family and is a sign of courtesy and hospitality. The SoundTrip Orchestra is made up of 25 musicians who capture contemporary European and multicultural influences and convey them in their most pure musical form. The contact with these talented musicians was established in 2008 when Gabriel Pérez was appointed to the management team of the JugendJazzOrchester NRW by Managing Director Thomas Haberkamp. Here he is able to both fulfill his task and pursue his interest in inter-cultural music development with young musicians. This project represents one of Gabriel's passionate works, which was driven by his high level of personal committment. In addition to the chamber orchestra, four outstanding soloists, Chris Potter, Luciano Biondini, Afra Mussawisade and Martín Bruhn, accepted Gabriel Pérez's invitation to participate in this debut album.
