Recording of their performance on 4/27/21
Matvei Sigalov, guitar, violin
Federico Peña, piano
Playing mostly their original music, with pieces from a few others, as well.
Matvei Sigalov was born in Samara, Russia. Classically trained on a violin from the age of six, he became interested in rock music during his teens and started playing guitar. In his early twenties, Matvei discovered jazz and it became the start of a musical journey that led him to the United States. Since his arrival to the U.S. in 2000, he's been active on the East Coast music scene and established himself a premier improvising violinist and in-demand guitar player. In recent years he also began building a resume as a producer/arranger. His musicality knows no stylistic boundaries. From jazz and fusion to pop and indie - there’s no musical situation where Matvei doesn’t feel at home.
Before leaving Buenos Aires for North America in 1984, Uruguay born Pianist Federico Peña honed his craft under the watchful eye of some of Argentina's top session players and producers like Gustavo Donez (Sweater), El Soca, Daniel Colombres, El Mono Fontana, Juan del Barrio and Jota Morelli. After studying intensely under world-renowned Argentine concert pianist Antonio de Raco, stateside and around the world, Peña continues to demonstrate his superior talents working with an extensive list of well-known artists such as Me'shell N'DegeOcello, Maxwell, Angela Boffill, Rare Essence, Pieces of a Dream, Digable Planets, Alana Davis, George Howard, Roy Hargrove, Chaka Khan, Cassandra Wilson, Marcus Miller, SMV (Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller & Victor Wooten) and many others.
