With rigors of this winter, some groovy Latin American beats are just what the doctor ordered. Meet Diego Marulanda. Roseneath Theatre is delighted to welcome this accomplished international musician as our sound designer and composer for La Maleta (The Suitcase). Diego Marulanda is a well-established dance, theatre, film and television scoring composer with vast experience in contemporary and world music.
To put some spring in your step this weekend, we are sharing Diego’s new music video.
Born in Bogota, Colombia, Diego is a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar as well as the instruments in his extensive collection. Diego lives in Toronto, where he has had an active music career as a composer, performer, music director, music arranger and producer since 1988. This diverse background has led him to a variety of interesting projects as a freelance musician. He is especially well known for his work in the area of World Music. Diego’s talent as a composer, band leader and musician and his CDs Rueda La Bolita, Ke’Ma , Por El Sol, El Otro Lado and La Verraquera, have garnered acclaim nationally and abroad. He was nominated for the Juno Awards in 1999 and Canadian Music Week in 2001 and 2006. Diego’s music has been heard on television series including La Femme Nikita and Peter Benchley’s Amazon. His talents as a composer and his ability to work with creative teams have recently taken him from creating the live musical landscape of a Mexican rodeo in Cozumel to composing film scores and creating music for dance performances with local choreographers and those as far away as Iqaluit, Nunavut and the Yukon First Nations in Canada’s Arctic.
