About Toque Libre
Toque Libre is the brain child of Iranian born Mehdi Farjami and the Chilean born brothers Pablo and Ricardo Ojeda. During the 90’s, the Ojeda brothers dominated the regional music scene with the infectious rhythms of their Portland based Latin-funk ensemble Rubberneck. Recently, this trio has combined their talents to form Toque Libre. Toque Libre is a Flamenco musical term meaning “free form”. True to form, Toque Libre combines the melodic pop sensibilities of the Ojeda brother’s music writing style with the driving Flamenco Rumba rhythms of Mehdi Farjami’s Guitar playing. Toque Libre’s sound is made complete with the addition of hypnotic pulses borrowed from the Afro-Cuban genre.
