Mariana Flores, Quito Gato, Alfonsina, Cappella Mediterranea

Mariana Flores and Quito Gato guide us in this sweet, lighthearted exploration of popular South American songs. Thanks to the powerful energy of these two musicians, the audience is invited to daydream and discover a whole new palette of emotions that are at once contradictory and magnificent.

“We simply wanted to open our hearts and share a part of our intimacy, and this music that is part of our lives. We bear ourselves naked, without trying to adopt any particular position. We feel the same energy when we come into contact with the music, and that’s what gives our interpretation its strength. It’s wonderful to be able to share this kind of relationship.”

Mariana Flores

Canciones Argentinas

In this radiant concert, soprano Mariana Flores pays tribute to the women of Latin America, depicting their loves, pains and joys in music, through popular songs from Argentina, the Cujo wine region and elsewhere. Quito Gato, who is also behind the arrangements, accompanies her on piano and guitar, alongside Romain Lecuyer on double bass. For the two fellow Argentines, this recital is an opportunity to introduce audiences to some of the most beautiful popular songs from their homeland from the 20th century onwards, including Dorotea la cautiva and Alfonsina y el mar.
