Fingertip Carnival - Wu Man & Son de San Diego
指尖嘉年華.吳蠻、聖地牙哥頌樂團

Release Date: 05/31/2018
Label: 風潮音樂 WIND MUSIC International Corporation TCD-9276
Wu Man and San Diego-based son jarocho group Son de San Diego just released a new album, "Fingertip Carnival". Like their performance at the 2014 Carlsbad Music Festival, the record explores the connections between Chinese and Mexican folk music and each culture's use of stringed instruments.

  
 

與墨西哥音樂對話
二十年前第一次踏上墨西哥,與墨西哥青年交響樂團合作演出,那時中南美國家的一切對我來說既新鮮又陌生。只記得我最後一個音落下後,現場觀眾對音樂瘋狂熱愛的表達撲面而來。之後,多次去墨西哥參加音樂節和度假旅遊,每次聽墨西哥音樂,有種陽光明媚的感覺,走在馬路上,音樂無處不在,讓人忍不住開心地笑,那是一個空氣裡彌漫著音樂的浪漫國度。

幾年前,我有了與中南美洲民間音樂家合作的願望,經朋友介紹認識了來自聖地牙哥的墨西哥吉他老師Eduardo。當第一次走進他的家,看見眼前擺放著各種彈撥樂器,立刻讓我眼前一亮。無論是各種彈撥樂器組合的音色搭配、動感十足的腳下節奏,還是嘹亮激昂的歌聲、舞姿曼妙的舞蹈;墨西哥作為拉丁美洲文化中重要的一支,在世界音樂領域中有著十分鮮明的民族特色。

在與Eduardo帶領的聖地牙哥頌樂團 (Son de San Diego) 合作下,我還發現民俗風情和生活習慣上,中墨兩國有許多相似之處。比如傳統節日中,都少不了豐富的美味佳餚、音樂歌舞的娛樂。而墨西哥人更是從早到晚地歡歌熱舞、品嚐美食,充滿了對生活的熱愛。對我來說最開心是,這個樂團是由各領域的音樂愛好者組成,包括中學音樂老師、大學生和司機,是一支真正的民間音樂團體。

這張專輯收錄了多首墨西哥、中國具民俗風情的民謠。這一次的錄音過程非常開心,充滿著許多歡笑聲,每錄一遍都是不同的即興發揮,使得錄音師在剪輯時難以取捨,最終完成了這張我與墨西哥音樂旅程的作品。
