Combine a concert pianist with a strong latin heritage, 3 highly regarded jazz musicians playing accordion, reeds, double bass and guitar, an extraordinary string (violin & viola) chamber musician with a modern flautist with a passion for Piazzolla, and you have Alturas.

 

This diverse group of musicians combine influences from their musical backgrounds to create something very special, unique and definitely NOT traditional tango.

 

Expect to hear dark sultry tango/jazz interspersed with surprisingly uplifting and lyrical melodies. Alturas do not play traditional tango dance music, yet on occasions listeners will be inspired to dance to Alturas’ innovative interpretation of tango.

 

With only one concert planned for Canberra this year, audiences of classical, jazz, latin and modern art music should not miss the opportunity to hear tango/jazz sextet Alturas.

Latin Encounters - Alturas/Trio Matiz/Abuka - 7:30pm
Cnr 103 Railway Pde & 19 Marrickville Rd
Marrickville, NSW 2204
Aus
02 9550 3777
Price: $25/$20(concession)

This concert sets the scene for you to discover that there is so much more to Latin American music than Salsa!

Inspired by the music of Argentina, Alturas combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz-inspired solos. 'Alturas' have been performing as a group since 2009 with its five members playing flute/bandoneon, violin/viola, saxophones/clarinets, piano and double bass. On this occasion Alturas will be joined by special guest Marcello Maio on piano and accordion.

Trio Matiz consists of highly-regarded Chilean musicians Hernan Flores and Janis Carter with cellist Imogen Granwal. The trio gives new and stimulating interpretations of traditional, contemporary and original Latin American songs for guitar, voice, cello and percussion.

The Brazilian souljazz band Abuka is always thriving for consistent rhythms and urbane unique sounds. Lead singer/guitarist and composer Tiago de Lucca, maestro (piano/keyboard/accordion) Marcello Maio and multi-percussionist “Cajon master” Sandro Bueno come from very different backgrounds in music. Perhaps, this is one of the reasons that Abuka chemistry on stage often results in remarkable experiences for their audiences.
