New Latin American Music for Guitar and String Quartet. Presented in collaboration by Old Town School of Folk Music, Chicago Latino Music Festival & Delmark Records

Guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque and the Kaia String Quartet, a rising star among American chamber ensembles, shine together in pieces by Latin American masters, from Astor Piazzolla to Eduardo Angulo and to Leo Brouwer, from Afro-Cuban to tango, from the Caribbean and Mexico to the Río de la Plata. This album gives a new flavor to jazz, Latino and chamber music. Fareed Haque's formidable experience in those fields in combination with Kaia's luxurious sound and the quartet's devotion to Latin American music blossom together in one of the unmistakable albums of the year. Enjoy a concert of music without boundaries.
