Martín, Aridane

Vibraphonist, Las Palmas, Canary Islands


"As a session vibraphonist, I need to be able to adapt my sound to play in different formats. I have been working with Mike Balter Mallets all my life and I can say these mallets allow me to get the sound I need in every situation." 

Aridane began his music studies at age of seventeen. He attended two conservatories, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and CMMB (Barcelona), graduating with best ratings and all the merits (Award of honor in percussion, chamber music, and orchestral soloist) and also received several prizes for them. 
After graduating he enrolled at the Liceu Conservatory studying with the acclaimed percussionist and drummer Marc Miralta and became a part of the Barcelona Jazz scene.
Aridane is actually recording his first album as a leader titled "Tiébélé" and it will be out this fall.
