Southern Cone Quintet (SOAS Concert Series) - 04/11/2016 Fri, 2016-11-11 16:18

Sounds & inspirations from Argentina, Uruguay & Chile.

Southern Cone Quintet takes its name from the geographical area of the same name, embracing the countries of Uruguay, Argentina and Chile. The area is brimming with diverse musical traditions, with popular music genres like tango, cueca, and candombe, as well as indigenous forms such as Mapuche music. It is from this rich terrain that the quintet draws its inspiration, rearranging pieces from a wide variety of sources: from 20th century composers like Astor Piazzolla and Violeta Parra, to traditional folk songs and ancient native chants.
