Lahti Organ Festival – Órgano Latino

Returned from the Lahti Organ Festival – Órgano Latino. The concert went well. It was the celebration of Latin-American music and dance! The international group of performers brought Argentinian “Misa criollan” by Ariel Ramírez and Vicente Bianchi’s “Misa a la chilenan”, based on Chilean folk music, to Sibelius Hall. Astonishing organ solos, tango and folk dances from different Latin American countries were also in the cards.

Unforgettable feeling when a big choir sings behind you! Improvising solos and accompaniment. Joy to work in a splendid concert hall and experience good work of stage technicians.

HERE you can listen for one of the parts from Missa Criola recorded by someones phone: “Agnus Dei” – Ariel Ramirez.
