AMBRODAVI

I recorded my new album „Campo Libre“ with my brand new  project AMBRODAVI last fall 2015 – going to be released soon!

For the last few years, David Riaño Molina has been based in Berlin, refining  his style as a modern-jazz guitarist and composer. For this project, he returned to his childhood home in Columbia to regain connection to his cultural roots and create his own musical style. Combining traditional columbian Cumbia rhythms and contemporary elements from jazz to pop, he   introduces a fresh new sound and enchanting fusion to the Berlin music scene. With its vibrant line-up and innovative, original energy, Ambrodavi promises to make your hips shake and your heart pulse.
