Tango y Folklore

Tango, South American  Folklore, our own compositions, traditional musical interpretations, others with subtle chamber type and more modern arrangements. This CD expresses a varied array of musical hues, representing us at this time. It is the onset of our path with its Latin American roots towards the search for our own music, the mark of what we are today, ever changing as always.

Here we come across an atypical repertoire for the Paraguayan folklore harp, since the tonal limitations of this instrument involves a complicated technique with keys to create the chromatisisms and modulations heard here.

It is pleasure for us as a Duo, to make our first CD after being together for four years. We wish to thank everyone who has given us the incentive to do so.
