Pedro Chamorro is one of the leading bandurria players in Spain. He has recently published a new CD with solo works by Fabían Forero Valderrama for the bandurria.
Fabían Forero Valderrama is a composer from Columbia. He had the idea to use the Columbian bandola (which is very similar to the Spanish bandurria) as a solo instrument, inspired by the great solo works for guitar or violin. He has composed 22 studies for the bandola Andina Colombiana. Pedro Chamorro has selected 9 studies and one Capricho for his recording.
Some of the pieces of this CD are also available as youtube videos.
