Transatlantic Chilean Folk Ensemble : 25 October

Transatlantic Chilean Folk Ensemble : 25 October

We'll gather artists from different countries to share knowledge of traditional and roots music, teaching music from each one’s cultural background, having Chile and Latin America as a starting point.

The result will be an international musical ensemble dedicated to perform new compositions, inspired on the traditions of the participating countries. Workshops will be given to teach each other the different tunes and rythms, to rehearse then as an Ensemble, making our own arrangements, and then giving concerts to show this work to an audience.'

Foxfirkin Lewisham presents:

Transatlantic Chilean Folk Ensemble Biography

Doors: 19:30 Price: FREE before 8 pm £3 after Entry: Over 18s only. Photo ID required. Room: Main Room

Its main objective is to create and perform music of Chilean (and other participating countries) inspiration, through an Orchestra formed by all kinds of acoustic instruments, from the classical and folk tradition.

The original repertoire, written by members of Ensemble, includes –in the Chilean side- styles as diverse as the cueca, huayno, "huachaca" (popular) jazz, Mapuche (natives) singing, and even the rhythms of African descent, a legacy which is largely unrecognized in Chile.

Being a non-traditional orchestra, the musicians avoid using sheet music in their concerts, so there is a constant visual communication with the audience, thereby generating a lively atmosphere where everyone is invited to participate, either dancing or singing.
