Tramas en mantra
from Scandinavia to Latin America
On June 15, 2019 was the premiere of Tramas en mantra in Montevideo - Sala Camacuá. A concert designed by the Ensemble Oikos from the selection of compositions by authors from Nordic countries and Latin America from distant places and ages.
The show proposes an interweaving, through the singing voice, narrated voice, the light, the soundscape and the instrumental accompaniment. Nature, man, the celebration of life, are the engines that inspire these works and allow us to find paths that bring times, spaces and styles closer together.
