Tramas en mantra

from Scandinavia to  Latin America

 Sala Camacuá / Saturday 15th June,  2019

tickets $300 - Tickantel

 

Based on a selection of  works of Scandinavian, Spanish and Latin American composers from different eras, Ensamble Oikos proposes in this concert, the construction  of a sound  weave, consonant and  resounding, from perspective and

affection.

 

Through narration, light, sound landscape and  instrumental music, choral songs will appear emerging from distant places and ages, and from different compositional models, sharing the emotional spirit.

 

Nature, man, the celebration of life, are the engines that inspire these songs and allow us to find paths to get time, space and style closer. Eduardo Mateo resounds with Hugo Alfvén's contemplation of nature, and ancient sacred texts become contemporary when used to express our present. Jose Marti's poetry, speaking about his own soul, approaches to the prayers to God, and the sound of a Swedish song, describing the sunset, joins the sound of Argentinian contemporary composer Moruja in his Lux aeterna.
