Diego Melgar is a Peruvian-born and Miami-raised, idiosyncratic guitarist reflecting the tropical melting pot he calls home. His two most recent albums, ‘Falling Forward’ and ‘Summer Memories,’ reflect the influence of Miami’s underground rave scene through a unique abstract lens coming from Melgar’s involvement in the avant garde scene. The albums ‘Noble Savage’ and ‘Mitingu’ showcase Melgar’s jazz roots, the prior featuring his American trio and the latter with his European quartet. ‘Where’d You Go’ by Butterfly Snapple, a group of which Melgar is a founding member, features him in the context of an eclectic hip-hop band. Currently, Melgar runs a concert series hosted at Floyd Miami called ‘Pachamanca,’ where artists from the several communities Melgar is a part of collaborate on new music for each concert, creating a one of a kind live musical experience.
