Musical Society Concert: 8 Cuerdas at River Dunes

November 4, 2018

Buy tickets now for this String Performance at the River Dunes Harbor Club on Sunday, November 4th at 5pm. The Pamlico Musical Society holds two concerts at River Dunes each year and we’re thrilled to introduce the Fall Performers.

 

About the Musicians:

The 8 Cuerdas Duo is comprised of American soprano Sarah Cullins and Colombian guitarist Daniel Gaviria and is named for the eight “strings” that make up their two instruments and the artistic unity that this husband and wife team bring to their performances.

The Burlington, Vermont-based duo recently moved to the Green Mountains from the Andes Mountains of Bogota, Colombia, where both Sarah and Daniel had busy careers as soloists and chamber musicians as well as educators. As 8 Cuerdas, Sarah and Daniel combine their classical training and experience with their love of traditional Latin American and Spanish rhythms and folklore, exploring the multiple musical identities of Latin America and the origin of many of its influences, the Iberian Peninsula. Whether recreating a soulful Argentinian Milonga, bringing out the percussiveness of the Latin American Chacarera, or drawing on the intense passion of Flamenco, the duo leads much of their classical repertoire into the world music realm, creating a wide variety of sounds and atmospheres.
