After a chance meeting with Incanto owner Tracy Parks, while playing in a restaurant in the Galerias mall, local singer-songwriter and guitarist Edgar Roxha will join Incanto’s piano bar entertainment roster for four consecutive Tuesdays beginning Sept. 11 at 7pm.
“Edgar is an amazing talent and we’re thrilled to have him joining us at Incanto. His beautiful vocals and guitar draws his audiences in and takes them on a unique musical journey.” – Tracy Parks
Singing and dancing was also part of Edgar Roxha’s early life and has led to a successful music career with gigs all over the Banderas Bay area. After the loss of his father at an early age, Edgar grew up ‘Pata Salada’ as an only child raised by his mom who always encouraged him to pursue his dreams. He began his love affair with music and dance at age three, having spent his early childhood performing in the flamenco dance troupe, Bellas Artes, which his father founded. He later began to focus more on his music and learning the guitar and piano, ultimately leaving dance behind. Impressively, by age 14 he was already playing for paying audiences.
As a four-year member of local trova-style quartet Los Desvelados, Edgar further developed his talents and has played continuously in numerous venues. He performed solo with notables Ana Victoria in a concert on the Malecon and opened for Mexican singer-songwriter, poet and musician, Alejandro Filio at Teatro Vallarta. His most notable gig personally, however, was a concert in Tepic several years ago where he played for approximately 10,000 people during a concert featuring several well-known Mexican artists.
“Music is my loyal friend and hardest challenge. It is my passion and constant companion” – Edgar Roxha
In 2012, following a difficult year of personal challenges and deep soul-searching, he successfully emerged refreshed and refocused on his solo career. He began writing his own music, performing in English and Spanish, with plans to release a CD in the not-too-distant future. His day job is with Sepal where he works in the field servicing accounts. You can see the exceptional talents of Edgar Roxha on Tuesdays, Sept. 11, 18, 25 and Oct. 2 at 7pm in the piano bar at Incanto. And watch for more of him there in the coming high season. No cover charge.
