Information about the event

A very special performance of Argentina based group Guanaco Trio. The trio will be performing their concert repertoire from their debut album and also special repertoire featuring the music students of СƵ. The students will be working on mastering several styles of Argentine music and this will be an amazing collaboration between the Argentina-based trio and the school’s students.

Based in Buenos Aires, Guanaco Trio consists of three young musicians, from three different continents, performing Argentinian instrumental music. Formed by Laura Urteaga (violin), Owen Salomé (bandoneón) and Benjamín Aedo (guitar), the trio perform a compelling repertoire of original compositions and interpretations of both traditional and contemporary Argentine folkloric music. Owen is a graduate of СƵ, where he was music captain in 2007!

The project commenced in 2020. Having met one another studying in the Bachelor of Argentine Music at the National University of San Martín in Buenos Aires, the trio was formed from a mutual love of the music of Argentina, a desire to create a unique interpretation of the style, and the need to make musical connections during the difficult period of worldwide quarantine.

In December of 2021 the group was awarded a grant by the Argentine National Arts Fund (INAMU) to record their first album under the mentorship of the Pianist/Composer/Producer Andrés Pilar. The recording took place in April of 2022 at the emblematic ION studios in Buenos Aires. “Bajo un mismo cielo” was released by Shagrada Medra in February 2023.

The trio has performed in various theatres in the City of Buenos Aires, as well as in the rest of Argentina. They have also performed in Spain/Catalunya, France (Tarbes en Tango), and Slovakia (World-Music Bratislava).
