There is something so primal and ageless about humans’ desire for excitement. From expeditions into uncharted territories, holidaying in exotic destinations, to the gleefully simple thrills of the merry-go-round – we are creatures shaped by adventure.
Latin America has long captured the imagination of locals, travelers, and dreamers alike, spawning dynamically diverse works of literature, art, and music. Named after 15th century Italian explorer, Amerigo Vespucci, the continent has birthed countless generations molded by historical upheavals yet grounded with passionately resilient cultures perennially pulsating with irresistible vibrancy.
In this programme, we will experience the richness of Latin America through a kaleidoscope of musical evocations. Come join us on a ride to remember!
