Stick and Bass European Tour 2018 Pt. 2

SnB Euro 2018 Pt 2

Chilean solo artists Tomás Díaz and Mauricio Nader continue their successful European Tour 2018 in September

After having made an extensive and successful European tour during the months of April, May and June of this year, both Chilean musicians return to the road in September for a second part of their tour in the continent, to show the best of their solo repertoire in an extraordinary combined show. This will be a spectacular concert suitable for all kinds of audiences, with an excellent stage performance and interaction with the crowd.

Tomás Díaz is one of the most active worldwide performers of the Chapman Stick, which provides an exquisite and unique sonority through strings played with the "tapping" technique. This is reflected in his recent solo album published in 2018 called "Introspective", which contains a selection of his compositions for the instrument, as well as a variety of music versions of his country of origin, arranged by himself.

Mauricio Nader has stood out for contributing to put the electric bass as a solo concert instrument, first through his two solo albums for solo bass, and then with the release of his third album called "Our Soul Revealed" (2018), which consists in own compositions with the bass as the main instrument, this time accompanied by symphonic orchestra, choirs, piano, percussion and effects; resulting in an excellent sound combination which reminds film music and new age.

Stick and Bass European Tour 2018

SnB Tour Poster

A very extraordinary, innovative and impressive concert will take place in different cities of Europe between April and June 2018

After their successful tour through Europe last year, the chilean musicians Mauricio Nader and Tomas Diaz return for promoting their new albums "Our Soul Revealed" (listen here) and "Introspective" (listen here).
A concert with music for all ages, with easy-listening music for Chapman Stick and 6-string electric bass.

Tomas Diaz has been playing the Chapman Stick for several years and is a globally respected artist on this instrument. The Chapman Stick is a fusion of electric guitar and e-bass with up to 12 strings. The strings are struck with both hands and not plucked, so that you can play melodies with bass accompaniment at the same time on an instrument. In 2016 Tomas Diaz published the EP "Opera Prima-Pieces for Chapman Stick" and now he has released his new album "Introspective".

Mauricio Nader is also an internationally recognized musician who has brought the electric bass to a higher level. He has released 10 studio albums with many bands. In 2015 he released his first solo album "Solo Pieces for Electric Bass". In 2017 he released his second solo album "The Four Seasons" where he arranges Vivaldi's masterpiece "The 4 Seasons" for electric bass. In 2016, he was nominated for the Pulsar Price in Chile as a Performer of the Year. Now he is promoting his third work called "Our Soul Revealed".
Both musicians play solo as well as together.

The band Claudio Cordero Trío, where Mauricio is the bass player, was the winner of the Pulsar Awards of Chilean Music, on the “Best Metal Disc” category with his disc “Quasar” (2016). This event is the equivalent of the Chilean Grammy, since it’s the top award given in Chile in the music industry. It’s undoubtedly an award to the continuous effort and work with the band.

Mauricio Nader releases innovative solo album / MAURICIO NADER LANZA INNOVADOR DISCO SOLISTA

The Four Seasons

Mauricio Nader has just published his second solo album, which consists on the transcription and recording of the complete work “The Four Seasons” of Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi for electric bass without accompaniment, and it will be promoted on a tour of live concerts which, until now, includes sixteen cities of the country, however, everything shows that there will be more during the next weeks.

Mauricio, who is also part of the bands “Alejandro Silva Power Cuarteto”, “Hidalgo”, and “Claudio Cordero Trío”, among others, has developed since a while an original solo work with his instrument, which consists in creating versions of classical music, Latin American folkloric music, popular music and his own compositions. All this executed without accompaniment musicians, neither support of audio tracks. This work has allowed him to tour a big part of Chile since more than two years, when he released his first disc called “Solo pieces for Electric Bass”, resulting in more than one hundred presentations in many cities of our country. Moreover, last August, he had the chance to present for the first time this proposal abroad, specifically in Slovakia, due to the tour made along with “Claudio Cordero Trío”.


Mauricio Nader acaba de publicar su segundo álbum solista, el cual consiste en la transcripción y grabación de la obra completa “Las Cuatro Estaciones” del compositor italiano Antonio Vivaldi para bajo eléctrico solo sin acompañamiento, y lo promocionará en una gira de conciertos en vivo que, hasta ahora, pasa por 16 ciudades del país, pero todo indica que se van a seguir sumando con el correr de las semanas.

Mauricio, quien también es integrante de las bandas Alejandro Silva Power Cuarteto, Hidalgo y Claudio Cordero Trío entre otras, ha desarrollado desde hace un tiempo un novedoso trabajo solista con su instrumento, consistente en hacer versiones de música docta, folklórica latinoamericana, popular y composiciones propias, todo ejecutado sin músicos de acompañamiento ni pistas de audio de apoyo. Este trabajo le ha llevado a recorrer gran parte de Chile desde hace más de dos años cuando lanzó su primer disco llamado “Solo Pieces for Electric Bass”, totalizando más de cien presentaciones en varias ciudades de nuestro país. Además, en agosto pasado, tuvo la oportunidad de presentar por primera vez esta propuesta en el extranjero, específicamente en Eslovaquia, aprovechando la gira Europea que hizo junto a Claudio Cordero Trío.
