Yasser Tejeda: La Madrugá Live
Yasser Tejeda is an award-winning Dominican composer, guitarist, vocalist, and producer. According to Billboard, Yasser is giving traditional folkloric music a new spin with jazz, rock, and Caribbean rhythms in "a frenzied celebration of ancestral union." At the same time, Juan Luis Guerra, the most influential Dominican artist in the world, praised his mission, calling it a "marvelous example of what's happening with Dominican music.” Yasser hopes to incite an awakening while inspiring new generations to explore, promote and uplift their roots. Tejeda has released three commercial albums, La Madrugá (2023), Kijombo (2019), and Mezclansa (2009), with his group Palotré, while also surprising his followers with an acoustic EP called Interior in 2021. Mezclansa was dubbed one of the “100 essential recordings of Dominican music” by the Dominican National Association of Art Writers (Acroarte). His second album Kijombo received six awards from Dominican Republic's Premios Indie, including Best Album. La Madrugá, which is Tejeda’s latest offering, features his latest collaboration with Vicente García, “En El Naranjo”, as well as the singles “Tu Ere’ Bonita” and “Todo Va a Marchar”.
Yasser Tejeda skillfully weaves together Afro-Dominican roots music, jazz, rock, and Caribbean rhythms in his unique fusion creations. La Madrugá Live invites you into the world of Yasser Tejeda's newest album, La Madrugá. Together with his dynamic 5-piece band, this experience leads you into a world where lush soundscapes harmonize, seamlessly merging traditions from the Dominican Republic's countryside with contemporary innovations.
