Sunday 27 August: Martín Berger and Jacob Harrison

Martín Berger is an Argentinian woodwinds player, composer, arranger, performer and educator. His music navigates between traditions, styles and genres: from popular to academic, to contemporary, through folkloric traditions around the world, jazz, free improvisation, experimental and even electronic compositions. His current project focuses on Brazilian choro, samba and Argentinian tango. His music is available to listen at soundcloud.com/martinberger

Martín is supported by his friend Jacob Harrison. Jacob is a classical guitarist and composer who writes spell-binding and highly virtuosic works for the solo classical guitar, film, theatre and his duo with saxophonist Martín. Coming from a classical guitar background, Jacob’s tree of influence is rooted in the music of Spain and South America. He explores flamenco, Brazilian choro, tango and beyond.
