Southern Cone Quintet

Sun 26 March, 7:30 pm

Southern Cone Quintet take the traditional dance forms of Argentina, Chile and Uruguay and produce new music that is compelling, complex and uninhibited. Their sound includes variations and re-arrangements of Tango, Cueca, and Candombe, as well as indigenous folk songs and ancient native chants.

Taking its name from the geographical area in Southern America, 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 style resembles Nuevo Tango, it could also be described as “Nueva Cueca” or “Nuevo Candombe”.

“Absolutely outstanding… Wonderfully romantic”

Four women from across the centuries live, breathe, and play football. Whilst each of them face very different obstacles in pursuing their dream profession, the possibility that the beautiful game will change their futures – and the world – is tantalisingly close.
