Leonardo Prakash is a citizen of the world. He is also a modern day troubadour, a French-Mexican musician classically trained in India, Mexico and lands across the globe. He has been internationally recognized for his skills as a multi-instrumentalist, and now introduces us to the subtle beauty of his poetry and the gentle richness of his voice on his first release as a singer-songwriter, “Keep the Faith.” On this song, Prakash sings over guitar, baglama, bass and drums with gentle harmonies dancing over his smooth, silky voice.
“My experience of the world we live in is that one is always getting “taken out” of our natural state by many different dependencies and distractions” says Prakash. “This song talks about the things in my life that trigger that memory in me such as seeing the stars or the sky. They remind me of the majesty of the universe and that all of that beauty is also inside me.”
Leonardo Prakash is a French-Mexican musician classically trained in his youth in guitar and sitar, and later in harp, flute, and jarana jarocha. His unique musical voice has transcended his traditional foundations. His music experimentis with the fusion of the intrinsic sounds of these instruments into classic rock and roll, flamenco, Indian raag, and the folk music of Latin America, Turkey, Japan, the Middle Eastern and East Africa.
Prakash is the proud recipient of the FONCA (Mexico’s National endowment fund for culture and the arts). Throughout the years, Prakash has collaborated on a wide array of musical projects and has toured in Europe, the US, Canada and Mexico. His collaborations span many genres with artists such as Bogdan Djukic, Jesus Mejía, Mitote Jazz, Jorge Pardo, Historias de Radne Krishna, Mar De Leva, Ganabia, Elamir, Mirabai Ceiba, Jai-Jadeesh, and Snatam Kaur, amongst others.
