Proyecto El Talisman
'A jam night turned magical in a rocking jazz bar in the highest capital of the world. That is the story of Proyecto El Talisman. When Canadian Veronica McNamee walked into Thelonious Jazz Bar in La Paz, Bolivia, she never expected to meet some of the best jazz musicians in South America. A master composer (Jorge Villanueva), a genius drummer (Zegadex), a piano virtuso (Freddy Mendizabal), and a bass to die for (Edwin Mendoza)! Representing a Canada/Bolivia musical collaboration, they made a lifelong impression in the South American jazz scene. Blending world rhythms to jazz and bossa nova and taking a tremendous risk recording in three languages, this ensamble is made in heaven!'
