Classico Latino and friends are set to win the UK
Classico Latino take the stage at Wilderness Festival, Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire, on Sunday 12th August 2012
Ten years ago at Cambridge University, two rising stars of the British classical music scene joined forces with Colombian pianist Iván Guevara-Bernal to create Classico Latino: a classically trained musical trio which plays traditional Latin American music on western classical instruments.
In 2012, they recorded their third studio album, Latin American Classics by Classico Latino and Friends, at the world-famous Abbey Road studios with a wide range of guest collaborators, including Colombian singer Andres Cepeda and members of the St John's College choir, Cambridge and are about to embark on an exciting UK tour.
They sold out the Teatro Colsubsidio Roberto Arias Perez in Bogotá, they sold out the 100 Club in London, this summer, Classico Latino are set to sell out your hearts.
Following their hugely successful South American tour, which saw the group play a gala concert at the famous the Teatro Colsubsidio Roberto Arias Perez in Bogotá and closing the Mono Nuñez Festival in an explosive performance which was televised throughout Colombia, Classico Latino are back in the UK.
With a headlining set at 2012's much-anticipated Wilderness Festival, plus a fixture at the award-winning Union Chapel, UK fans of the latin-classical fusion trio will have a chance to hear their favourite hits in both rural and urban settings.
2012 will also mark the launch of Classico Latino's third album: Latin American Classics by Classico Latino and Friends. Recorded at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London, this album features collaborations from an incredibly wide range of performers. Artists featured on the record range from renowned Colombian musicians such as Faber Grajales, Andres Cepeda, the emerging singer Eirini Tornesaki and members of the choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge.
The album features both traditional Latin American songs, such as Gracias a la Vida and Pueblito Viejo and original compositions, such as The Earth Song; an love-letter to the Earth and nature.
Such an exciting addition to world music as well as a diverse tour promises to mark Classico Latino as the world music group to watch.
