For his new ensemble Ruidoscuro, Frank Rosaly composed contemporary music inspired by the cultures of Central and South America before the arrival of Columbus. With acoustic and electronic instruments he illustrates the integration of these traditions into the developing musical diaspora from Africa to The Andes.
Frank Rosaly was formed as a drummer and improviser in Chicago, where over the course of fifteen years he collaborated with influential musicians such as Roscoe Mitchell, Jeff Parker and Dave Rempis. In 2016 he moved to Amsterdam. Ruidoscuro consists of improvising musicians from various European cities, and includes members of The Thing, Han Bennink Trio and The Ex.
