Peruvian singer-songwriter Gianmarco Zignago performed last Tuesday, November 7, at the Symphony Space in New York City, as part of his current Acoustic Tour.
Accompanied by just a small ensemble (Omar Rojas on bass, and Pedro Luis Pacora on piano) Gianmarco didn't need much more than his voice and effects pedals to completely fill up the space with his songs.
As an added bonus to the New York crowd, his daughter Nicole joined him on stage with one of her original songs, and performing as a duet a perfect rendition of Vida de mi Vida. It was the first time in her incipient career that she was presenting an original piece, and New York welcomed her with an honest and emotional standing ovation.
Gianmarco went back to basics that night, but not with the intention of making it easier or simpler. He's revisiting the fundamental, essential foundation of his starting point. There's no better way than that for true art to thrive.
