Contemporary accordion music from Latin America

In most Latin American countries the accordion is playing a mayor role in popular music, but only very recently it was discovered in a contemporary music context. In many places it is now attracting a lot of interest among composers and public, and I as an interpreter have had the priveledge to be a part of this process . The composers refer to different sources: to the traditional music and culture of their country, to European or US-American contemporary music tendencies, and to other foreign traditions. Also very interesting electroacoustic approaches can be found.. The special cultural background of each country is individually reflected in the pieces.
The composers I have worked with during the last few years all have a very imaginative approach to the accordion. del viento, los sonidos…is a program both varied and intensive and shows different facets of the continent ´s new music life.
