Deemed “avant sonic acrobats” by LA Weekly, Duo del Sol’s music sparkles with kinetic energy and soul.
At once compared to Radiohead while still bringing in a Gypsy element reminiscent of Django and Grappelli, this duo puts on a concert show that excites audiences and thrills fans from coast to coast. Passionate, energetic, romantic and intelligent, violinist, Javier Orman (from Uruguay) and guitarist, Tom Farrell, (Chicago, Ill.) are artists in every sense of the word. The creativity of their original music has been called nothing less than, “genius.”
Each musician brings their own special quality to the stage and to each composition…Antonio Banderas with a bit of El Mariachi thrown in.
On stage, this duo takes no prisoners! They harness the raw energy of a rock band by wildly stretching their instruments beyond traditional limits. Guitarist Tom Farrell’s musical beginnings were inspired by Black Sabbath, the Cult, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin and violinist Javier Orman is addicted to powerful, expressive music, saying that great music transports him to alternate universes.
Recently, along with too many credits to mention, Farrell recorded for the soundtrack of actor Will Ferrell’s movie, “Casa de mi Padre.” Orman has toured with the Entropy Ensemble (a hybrid chamber/jazz group), performed throughout Latin America, and teaches children through a program he founded called “Kidzymphony.”
