*New album 'Salsa Classics' to be released 17th November 2023*
Classico Latino was born in 1998 following a chance encounter between Colombian pianist Ivan Guevara and English cellist Graham Walker. Ever since, the group has developed its uniquely powerful blend of Classical finesse and Latino flair, releasing five studio albums and entertaining audiences from Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London to the foothills of the Colombian Andes.
Drawing on the familiar Bolero and Tango as well as lesser-known rhythms such as the Pasillo and Joropo, Classico Latino's music tells the amazingly varied stories and emotions of Latin America whilst also bringing a fresh perspective and breathing new life into songs from across the continent.
Classico Latino's exciting new album, a homage to and collaboration with salsa legend Fruko, will be released on 17th November 2023.
