- Aquarelle GQ and Clarice Assad
A Mi Pueblo is a beautifully haunting piece of music written by the Paraguayan harpist Ismael Ledesma. This arrangement for guitar quartet and voice is by quartet member, Mike Baker.
- New collaboration with Clarice Assad!
We have known Clarice Assad for many years, having discovered a striking musical affinity from early on in our friendship. In 2009 we commissioned Clarice to write a piece for our debut recording with Chandos Records, ‘Spirit of Brazil’. The outcome was a three movement work titled ‘Danças Nativas’ which earned her a Latin Grammy nomination. It has since been our intention to develop this collaboration even further. To realise this long-held ambition we have now come together as performers to present a truly eclectic programme of genre-defying music full of rhythm, energy, humour and emotion.
