Bar LunÁtico warmly welcomes Rale Micic and Abe Rábade duo!

Rale is a critically acclaimed guitarist from Serbia who fuses jazz with the haunting melodies of the Balkans. Abe is a magnificent pianist from Santiago de Compostela, Spain. They first joined forces in the 90s, as students at the Berklee College of Music.  And lucky for us, they remain two friends who enjoy communicating through music, as before.

Rale Micic

Rare is one of the most successful and critically acclaimed jazz musicians to emerge from Serbia. Audiences throughout the world have been captivated by Micic’s mesmerizing music, exploring interaction between his Serbian musical roots and his extensive knowledge of jazz.

With three albumsreleased on CTA Records, Rale Micic created cult-like following among music fans with his mix of jazz and haunting melodies from the Balkans. On his second release entitled Serbia, Micic establishes himself as one of the most inventive voices on the music scene today, featuring renowned Grammy-nominated trumpet player Tom Harrell, and was called “mellow, tight and tasteful” by Downbeat. His trio album, symbolically titled “3”, is an entrancing trio record described as “ a groove heavy record… pure listening pleasure”.

He has been featured in numerous publications including Downbeat, JazzTimes, LA Times, San Diego Tribune, Boston Globe, etc. and has worked with the jazz artists such as Tom Harrell, Don Friedman, Eric Alexander, Jason and Delfayo Marsalis, etc. He is a member of Tom Harrell Chamber Ensemble and is featured on critically acclaimed release First Impression (2015 High Note). Rale Micic plays Sadowsky guitars and D’Addario strings.

“Micic is bringing an intriguing new perspective to the jazz guitar.”   LA TIMES

Abe Rábade

Born in Santiago de Compostela (Galiza) on September 8, 1977. He began his musical studies at age 4 in the Historic Conservatory of Santiago, where the method employed for beginners was Kódaly -a way of learning that emphasizes creativity and intuition above all-. He continued his career at the jazz school “Estudio escola de música”, also in Compostela. Solfege was tought with standard jazz songs and he discovered there that improvisation could be the highest expression of this art form called music. In 1995 he went to Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA), where I earned a Cum Laude Degree in Jazz Composition and Piano Performance in 1999. In 2000 he came back to the city he always want to be coming back: Santiago de Compostela.

 " Music is one of the most powerful means for emotional comunication and it also opens the path for intuition. I try not to forget these two factors in all the projects I start out".
