Sin Fronteras performs Latin American traditional and Nueva Cancion Music throughout Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Inmerse yourself in vibrant rhythms, soulful melodies, and breathtaking harmonies, weaving throughout the uncommon poetry of Latin America's common people -- songs of life, humanity, equality, justice, and hope.
Since 2002, the group has shared their music and commitment to promoting an understanding of the complexities of Latin America's pueblos. Their music draws on the Canto Nuevo (New Song) tradition originating in the social movements of the southern cone. The New Song of Latin America is defined by lyrics which speak to the everyday experiences of the working class and the dispossessed. The form focuses its energy on the struggle against oppression.
Sin Fronteras blends original arrangements with the harmony of folkloric rhythms found in the music of Ecuador, Venezuela, Mexico, Argentina and Chile. Following in the steps of Violeta Parra, one of the originators of the Canto Nuevo, Sin Fronteras is reconstructing the collective memory of Latin American musical traditions. To that end, they also weave Andean and classical musical styles with the folkloric traditions of Mexico and Chile, rejuvenating and reinventing the rich musical history of Latin America.
Their members hail from the US, Colombia, Mexico and Chile.
