Kotebel has released 5 albums since 2000, including the critically acclaimed ‘Omphalos.’ “The main body of the [[Concerto for Piano and Electric Ensemble]] album is formed by the four movements that comprise the ‘Concerto for Piano‘,” says keyboardist and founding member Carlos Plaza Vegas. “It is pure music; no reference to extra-musical elements. However, the other four pieces on the album are based on conceptual elements.”
The band was formed in 2000 as an eclectic project, immersed in the mainstream of progressive “art” music. Kotebel’s music is an elaborate, yet accessible blend of avant-garde symphonic rock, with a wide range of influences from classical music to jazz to world music.
Kotebel’s actual line-up includes Carlos Franco Vivas on drums and percussion; César Garcia Forero on guitars; Jaime Pascual Summers on bass; Adriana Nathalie Plaza Engelke on keyboards; and Carlos G. Plaza Vegas on keyboards.
