Ground-breaking trio release new album on April 15
Journey Through Latin America is the set to be the latest release from Latin American/classical fusion trio, Classico Latino. The trio were formed in 1999 at Cambridge University by Colombian pianist Ivan Guevara and two rising stars of the British classical music scene, cellist Graham Walker and violinist Lizzie Ball. They developed an original style by combining traditional Latin American melodies and rhythms with classical music techniques.
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, the new album features iconic melodies and songs from across the continent, including an arranged tango in Carlos Gardel’s ‘El día que me Quieras,’ the traditional Venezuelan joropo ‘Alma Llanera,’ and ‘Gracias a la Vida’ by Chilean composer Violeta Parra.
Journey Through Latin America is released on Monday, April 15.
