Bliss of Heaven: Music of Latin America

Chilean-born pianist, composer and tango expert Daniel Rojas reimagines Latin America’s best-loved music in this concert for piano and strings.

Supported by the high-energy Ensemble Apex String Quartet led by violinist Anna da Silva Chen, Rojas' sensitive arrangements and soulful original works are a heavenly alchemy of tango, mambo, salsa and Andean folk music fused with classical sensibilities.

The program features music from Rojas’ recent recording, BLISS OF HEAVEN: Music of the New World, including Piazzolla’s dramatic Libertango and Chucho Valdés’ danceable Mambo Influenciado.

Experience the passion of Latin American music as you've never heard it before.


Coffs Harbour: Presented by Coffs Harbour Music Society in association with Musica Viva Australia as part of its Regional Touring program.
