Canciones de Acá Program

Join Rasa String Quartet and Argentinian jazz / folk singer, Delfina Cheb, for an evening of music from the Andes and Southern South America. You will hear tunes by Astor Piazzolla, Osvaldo Golijov, and Gabriela Lena Frank, original songs composed by Delfina, and more! There is nothing quite like the sensuous tangos, adventurous melodies, spirited rhythms, and calming overtones of South American music and we can’t wait to celebrate these wonderful cultures with you!

The Boston – based Rasa String Quartet received first prize in the Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition and the Music Teachers National Association Chamber Music Competition and have performed across the New England area, including multiple appearances with Rockport Music, Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society, Boston New Music Festival, Music for Food, and Brian O’Donovan’s St. Patrick’s Day “Celtic Sojourn.” They are passionate about performing innovative, accessible, and powerful programs that are inspired by a wide variety of traditions, fuse multiple genres, and incorporate different artforms.
