ECHOES FESTIVAL | Carla Ruaro: 'A Piano in the Amazon'
Conceived by award-winning Brazilian pianist Carla Ruaro, 'A Piano in the Amazon' is a visionary artistic, pedagogical and social project which showcases the music of contemporary Amazonian composers both to local Amazonian communities and audiences worldwide. After hoisting a piano onto a boat and traversing the Brazilian Amazon to undertake ground-breaking eduactional work with riverside tribes, Carla Ruaro now brings this unique programme to the UK concert hall for the first time. Join her on a fascinating journey into the sound universe of the Amazon, with an inspiring musical programme interspersed with entertaining anecdotes from Carla's adventures around the jungle, in the unusual setting and exceptional acoustics of the Brunel Tunnel's Grand Entrance Hall.
Celebrating the release of the project CD & DVD, the event will also include a short screening from the accompanying film documentary, rounded off with complimentary Brazilian cocktails!
