8 Cuerdas: Passion Meets Tango & Flamenco

American soprano Sarah Cullins and Colombian guitarist Daniel Gaviria are the duo 8 Cuerdas, named for the eight “strings” that make up their two instruments and the artistic unity that this husband and wife team bring to their performances. Sarah and Daniel combine their classical training and experience with their love of traditional Latin American and Spanish rhythms. Their musical journey explores the multiple musical identities of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula, showcasing passionate and soulful interpretations of Argentine tango and milonga by Piazzolla and Guastavino, then continuing up the continent with the beautifully rich repertoire of Latin American song and its influences from across the sea. You will hear favorites such as Aranjuez, Ma Pensée and Bachianas Brasileiras.
