In the third Sounds Green of the series we welcome back local favourites Classico Latino following their sold-out performance at last year’s Festival.
Classico Latino came about as a result of a chance meeting between Colombian pianist Ivan Guevara and British cellist and conductor Graham Walker, while both were studying at St John’s College, Cambridge. In exploring each other’s culture and musicianship they developed an original style by audaciously combining traditional Latin American melodies and rhythms with classical music techniques.
Their Sounds Green set includes a selection of gorgeous music from all over Latin America, including smooth Boleros, classic Tangos and vibrant Rumbas, alongside excerpts from their new album, Tu Tierra, which explores the remarkable musical heritage of the Colombian Andes.
