In 2014 the Benjamin Furman Project was formed, and released their debut album “Desde el Jardín”, a half-instrumental half-song project that gathered sounds from the traditions of South America (mainly Chile, Argentina and Perú) together with Folk and Jazz. His second work, “EP: Luz de la Mañana” (2016) follows this line of traditional elements (South American Folk) but is more heavily focused on song and poetry. His lyrics explore the landscapes of nature, desire, love, awakening and suffering.
Benjamin has performed his music internationally in festivals and important events in South America (Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia), New York, Boston and Canada. He performed in “Festival Internacional Jazz a la Calle” (Uruguay), “Festival Internacional Jazz Lebu” (Chile), “Festival Internacional de Pichidegua” (Chile), “Boston Green Fest” (USA), “Jazz Composer Series” (Canada), “Festival Internacional Los Vilos y Pichidangui” (Chile), and more. He has collaborated notedly with musicians such as Tsidii Le Loka (Broadway’s “The Lion King”), Marta Botía (“Ella Baila Sola”), Tali Rubinstein, Paz Court, Benjamin Walker, Raimundo Santander, Franz Mesko, Tomas Latorre, Yousif Yaseen, Cristian Gallardo, and others.
Nando Michelin (Berklee professor, collaborated with Esperanza Spalding) said “I believe [Benjamin] will be an important voice of South American popular song, and its ambassador around the world”
