Luz de Riada is a Jazz/rock/folk ensemble formed in Mexico city by Ramsés Luna in 2010 - multi-instrumentalist and former member of Cabezas de Cera from 1998 top 2011. The band released its debut in 2011 titles "Cuentos y Fábulas" (Tales and Fables) to great international critical and audience acclaim. Following 3 years of touring and shows in Mexico, Chile, Argentina they released their second album "Cuentos y Fábulas vol. 2" which is a live compilation of several key performances in Mexico City from 2012 and 2013. In 2016, Luz de Riada are back with the final installment of the Tales and Fables trilogy and will be starting a new chapter by touring the USA with the following line-up:

Ramses Luna: saxophone, wind midi WX5
Luis Nasser: bass, pedals
Brandon Cameron: drums and percussion
Aaron Geller: Electric and Acoustic Guitar

"A new and fresh musical project has just arrived from the heart of Mexico. Luz de Riada offers more than only music, their compositions share a concept, which makes the listener create their own images and stories, so while you listen to them, you will surely have what I call “music totally visual”. The band is formed by four trained and talented musicians who have been creating music for different bands and projects, so all their gathered experience give as a result a high-quality material."

Luz de Riada es una banda de rock-jazz-folk de la ciudad de México, fundada en junio de 2010 por Ramsés Luna - multintrumentista de la banda Cabezas de Cera del 1998 al 2011-. En octubre del 2011 realiza LDR su debut discográfico con el CD titulado: Cuentos y Fábulas, recibiendo gran aceptación por el público en general y de la critica especializada tanto en México como en el extranjero. Después de tres años de conciertos en diversos foros y festivales en México, Chile y Argentina es hasta entonces cuando presenta su segundo álbum bajo el titulo Cuentos y Fábulas vol. II ; un CD recopilatorio de grabaciones en vivo que se llevaron a cabo entre el 2012 y 2013 en diversos foros de la Ciudad de México.

Acerca de este cambio en Luz de Riada el periodista y crítico de rock David Cortés (Revista Rolling Stone)
comenta en junio de 2015:

"Luz de Riada es ahora un power trío y como tal ha ganado una energía extra, una solidez densa, extrema por momentos. Esta permutación imprime otros matices en la música de la agrupación. Se escucha más pesada, pero sin llegar a la dureza del heavy metal; se adentra en la psicodelia, pero hay una pátina de jazz que impide que se hunda totalmente en ella. Los influjos de la música del mundo permanecen, pero se ven imantados de electricidad, son un poco más rugosos, aunque también saben de los momentos en los cuales conviene apostar por la finura. Luz de Riada ha cambiado . . . y lo ha hecho para bien."

I have some sad news. Luz de Riada will not be able to come to New York for the show on Friday night. They have been forced to alter their tour due to some a-hole festival organizers in North Carolina, who are forcing them to sound check at 8 am the next morning, and they have cancelled. I am pretty livid about this, but it is beyond my control. Sorry if you had made plans to attend. Regards, Marc
