His music has been on top of the charts of radio stations and TV channels in Colombia such as: La FM, Amor Stereo, La X and El Canal 13 and has been reviewed by magazines such as Rolling Stone and newspapers as El Tiempo and El Espectador. He has performed in venues such as Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro, Museo Nacional de Colombia, The Jazz Gallery (NYC), Terraza 7train (NYC), Le Poison Rouge (NYC), Encuentro de Musicos Colombianos NYC 2011, Tito Puente Summer festival (Boston), Auditorio Pablo Sexto U.Javeriana, Plaza de Eventos Simon Bolivar Plaza Mayor (Madrid) and many others.
At the present, Alejandro is developing two projects as a bandleader. First, the Alejandro Zuleta Vallenato Collective, that performs regularly at Terraza 7train NYC, in which he presents an exciting journey into this beautiful Colombian folklore. Very consciously translating the original accordion repertoire to the piano, filled with beautiful songs, contagious rhythms, true to the spirit of “La Parranda” and spiced up by creative and engaging spaces of solo and collective improvisation.
Second, the AZ JAZZ/IMRPOV PROJECT, in which Zuleta, joined by very talented musicians from the NYC scene, explores the idiom of improvised music drawing inspiration from diverse sources such as his own compositions, Afro-Colombian rhythm, avant-garde Jazz, free improvisation and live electronic music. He has been developing an electronic interface to process the piano by the hand of Dafna Naphtali one of New York’s most relevant voices on the electronic music scene. These two projects will be recorded in the spring of 2012.
