AireLatino (>> Aire Latino Portrait, Aire Latino Live) takes the listener on a musical journey throughout South America to the home of the Bossa-Nova, Samba, Choro, Son, Cha-Cha, Bolero und Milonga, to name only a few. AireLatino perform their own compositions as well as traditional pieces from Brazil, Cuba, Argintina and Venezuela. Elements from Latin, Jazz, Funk and Classic are unreservedly mixed to a cocktail of “Latin Freestyle”. The complex compositions are rhythmic, jazzy, imposing and sensitive. In AireLatino well known titles from Sting, Buena Vista, Jobim oder Powel sound new and refreshing.
Their repertoire is a mix of instrumental and vocal pieces that are mostly lighthearted, lively and rhythmic. AireLatino combines high spirits with intelligent musicality and the outcome is World Music, not Folk Music – inspiration, not imitation.
