Sunday Sessions present The Southern Cone Quintet – Sunday February 19th 2017 (with Iñigo Mikeleiz Berrade on accordion)

Southern Cone Quintet at SOAS

Sunday Sessions present The Southern Cone Quintet

Compton Terrace, N1 2 UN London, United Kingdom
Doors open 3.30pm, music 4pm – 5.30pm
Advance tickets £8 (£6 Union chapel members)
or on the door £10

Southern Cone Quintet takes its name from the geographical area of the same name, embracing the countries of Uruguay, Argentina and Chile. The Southern Cone has a rich and diverse musical tradition, with genres including Tango, Cueca, and Candombe, as well as indigenous ethnic forms such as Mapuche music.

It is from this rich earth that the Southern Cone Quintet draws its inspiration. The repertoire consists of re-arrangements of pieces from a wide variety of sources. From twentieth century composers like Astor Piazzolla and Violeta Parra, to traditional folk songs and ancient native chants. While the styleresembles Nuevo Tango, it could also be described as “Nueva Cueca” or “Nuevo Candombe”.

The performers are as diverse as the music itself. They include a Chilean-born arranger and woodwind player, a Spanish prodigy accordionist, a classical violinist of Bosnian roots, as well as a jazz guitarist and double bassist (both British).

Anisa Arslanagić – violin
Claude Werner – clarinet/flute/arranger
James Kitchman – electric guitar
Iñigo Mikeleiz Berrade – accordion
Louis Thomas – double bass
