Edgar Méndez Triumphs at La Gata Foro Bar.

Trovador Edgar Méndez delivered a special concert at La Gata Foro Bar, precisely because he was present six years ago at the inauguration of this venue for performing arts. Furthermore, this concert marked the celebration of his 20-year career as a troubadour musician.

Edgar Méndez began his journey in a café named "La Canarita del Tiempo" in Celaya, Guanajuato. His early influences came from the troubadour musician Oscar Chávez, particularly a song titled "El Infierno es Amor" (Hell is Love).

Edgar is primarily an interpreter, and he has found his creative stride in the world of theater, where he has composed music for theatrical productions. In the realm of trova and bohemia, his inspiration draws from the music of Oscar Chávez, whom he knew since he was a child, right in his parents' bohemian environment. The song "Macondo" is closely associated with his reading of Gabriel García Márquez's "One Hundred Years of Solitude" during that time. Edgar holds a degree in music with a specialization in concert performance and guitar from the University of Guadalajara (UDG). Prior to this, he pursued a technical career as a musical instrument instructor at the University of Guanajuato. He has had the opportunity to showcase his art in various theaters across Mexico.

La Gata Foro Bar holds immense significance for Edgar, who speaks of the trust and familial bonds that led to the inauguration of this space with a Trova concert. Thanks to the efforts and management of Coral Arroyo, it drew full crowds for two or three nights. Undoubtedly, we will witness Edgar Méndez on many more occasions, thanks to the friendship of Coral and the exceptional troubadour musician who fills La Gata Foro Bar with bohemia and magic.
