In 1997 he recorded in LA, "Facing South". In 1999, while living in BCN recorded "In Search of Happiness" for the Buddhist Monastery of Garraf, Sakya Tashi Ling. In 2011, he recorded "Ceremony" with Portuguese multi-instrumentalist Ricardo Passos.
Trevor Warren (born London, England 1966) started playing the guitar in 1982. Beginning with rock, he then started exploring jazz, most recently in his award winning group Disassembler, and world jazz band Deva. He has worked in dance/theatre, with Indian percussionist Balachanda, and in 2012 went to Kenya where he recorded, composed and produced an album with Ayub Ogada. He met Abelardo at a concert in Granada, Spain in 2008 and this is their first album together.
