Rodrigo Almonte Zegarra dlr Musician in Residence 2022
The 3rd residency of 2022 will see Peruvian guitarist and composer Rodrigo Almonte Zegarra compose a new musical suite named Sounds of the Blue Book

This new musical suite is inspired by Roger Casement’s experience in Peru when he travelled to Putumayo in the Amazon rainforest in 1910 to investigate allegations of exploitation against indigenous people being kept as slaves at rubber farms.

Rodrigo’s compositions will capture the spirit of the people and their stories, as documented in Casement’s journal, The Blue Book, and express this story through myriad soundscapes that will sonically transport listeners to the Amazon forest.

He will be joined by drummer Matthew Jacobson and pianist Lorenzo Vitolo in a performance of Sounds of the Blue Book in dlr LexIcon Studio on 25th August.
