Bahareque (Latin American Rhythms)
If you are looking for "Latin American Rhythms", then this is definitely the band!
"Bahareque" have built up a strong following and acquired a high profile in the UK Latin community, but now play increasingly at a wide range of non-Latin events - Festivals, receptions, private parties, conferences, corporate gatherings, Oxbridge Balls and the like.
The three girls and two of the male members of the band are from Latin America, plus one Brit on Venezuelan and Paraguayan Harps. The other instruments include the (Venezuelan) cuatro, the (Andean) charango, flute, pan-pipes, guitars and assorted percussion. They sing and play songs and themes from Mexico to Chile and just about everywhere in between.
Their new CD, "Shout To The World" received excellent reviews.
There is no other line-up in the UK with quite the variety of nationalities and repertoire offered by "Bahareque".
