About the concert
Shark & Fox | Emily-Rose Sarkova (AUS) & Jaron Freeman-Fox (CAN)
This irresistible Canadian-Australian collaboration shape-shifts between traditions, occasionally to the point that the instruments themselves transform; a fiddle to viol d’amore or fretless guitar, an accordion to modular synthesiser, all driven by their infectious zest for music without boundaries.
Frenetic Bulgarian dances, haunting Appalachian twangs, droning Irish reels, Swedish polskas and songs that speak into existence the ephemeral mysteries of life, all effortlessly yet meticulously woven together by the vast multi-cultural history of the fiddle and accordion as musical companions.
Jaron's projects have garnered multiple Canadian music awards and has seen him tour from far flung Mongolian mountains to Scandinavian forests and all the in-betweens. Emily-Rose has been an ARIA and Art Music Award finalist for best jazz work and best world music album. Both have traversed the globe to tour and learn from musical masters, and imbue their compositions and performances with great depth whilst indulging their penchant for mischief. This is the inaugural tour of this very special musical partnership.
Based in Buenos Aires, Guanaco Trio consists of three young musicians, from three different continents, performing Argentinian instrumental music. Formed by Laura Urteaga (violin), Owen Salomé (bandoneón) and Benjamín Aedo (guitar), the trio perform a compelling repertoire of original compositions and interpretations of both traditional and contemporary Argentine folkloric music.
The project commenced in 2020. Having met one another studying in the Bachelor of Argentine Music at the National University of San Martín in Buenos Aires, the trio was formed from a mutual love of the music of Argentina, a desire to create a unique interpretation of the style, and the need to make musical connections during the difficult period of worldwide quarantine.
In December of 2021 the group was awarded a grant by the Argentine National Arts Fund (INAMU) to record their first album under the mentorship of the Pianist/Composer/Producer Andrés Pilar. The recording took place in April of 2022 at the emblematic ION studios in Buenos Aires. “Bajo un mismo cielo” was released by Shagrada Medra in February 2023.
The trio has performed in various theatres in the City of Buenos Aires, as well as in the rest of Argentina. They have also performed in Spain/Catalunya, France (Tarbes en Tango), and Slovakia (World-Music Bratislava).
