Bosquejo en Riesgo
Bosquejo en Riesgo is a musical project formed by Costa Rican musicians Maria Amalia Quesada (voice) and José Arturo Soto (piano), who are based in Boston, Massachusetts, EE.UU. Through experimentation and improvisation in various genres, ranging from Latin American folklore to jazz, the group’s music carries all the musician’s multicultural experience.
Bosquejo en Riesgo is also an expansion of the artist’s musical boundaries and an approach to different audiences through original compositions and arrangements from the Latin American imagination.
