Nomads presents Roots, Winds, & Strings
Nomads is an ensemble whose mission is to bring traditional world music into the concert hall. The Latin Roots, Winds and Strings concert features Alison Baker, and Eduardo Cassapia on both classical and native wind instruments, and percussion. They will be accompanied by a string quartet including Brett Detweiler, Nora Karakousoglou, Sonja Larson, and Pedro Vera, and special guest Juan Antonio De Los Angeles on the bombo.
This year's repertoire features music played throughout South American, including Argentina, Brazil, Boliva, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Be ready for a beautiful evening of some of South America's lesser known rhythms performed by incredible musicians. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
