Correo Aèreo Duo brings award-winning world music for all ages to BPA November 8
Correo Aèreo (Air Mail) is an award winning acoustic multi-instrumental and vocal Latin/World music duo. Nationally and internationally touring for the past twenty years, they have performed and recorded the traditional music of Latin America, especially Venezuela, Argentina, Mexico, as well as their own deeply-rooted original music on stage, in feature films, and on television and radio broadcasts. Together, Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin combine an array of string and percussive instruments with silken vocal harmonies described as “locked in intimate embrace” by the Austin Chronicle. Abel sings and plays Venezuelan and Mexican harp, guitar and Venezuelan cuatro. Madeleine sings and plays violin, maracas, bombo and jarana. Visit online at www.correoaereo.com.
According to the Austin Chronicle, “Their music has sabor. Madeleine is constant and fluid motion. Her hands, legs, her hips sway. She doesn’t shake the maracas; she jerks, snaps, rolls, twirls and spins them. Abel is the counterweight. His relaxed, confident style of playing holds the stage together and makes the music solid…Take my advice: skip class, skip work, skip Emos, and even skip Son Yuma if you have to. See Correo Aèreo.” Gail Gunther Reitan, of Hamline University, said, “The music of Correo Aèreo…inspired respect about a culture and people whose voice is rarely heard and even more rarely experienced.”
