TBSO Musicians

 Each piece explores different aspects of the rich musical traditions of Latin America, taking audiences on a journey through the region’s diverse and unique soundscape. Morlock’s “Theft” blends traditional Latin American rhythms with contemporary classical elements, while Santos’ “Ykamiabas” draws inspiration from the Amazonian rainforest. Paquito D’Rivera’s “Aires Tropicales” pays homage to Cuba’s lively and colourful music, and José Evangelista’s “Spanish Garland” takes listeners on a musical voyage through Spain. Get swept away to the tropics with us!
