WATCH: Folias Duo Live at IPR's Studio 2

Oct 8, 2014

When the Folias Duo came to Iowa, the husband-wife pair's first stop was Cedar Falls, where they played a live set in IPR Classical's Studio Two. They'd been on the road for seven hours, but their zest was irresistible. Try it: here's a video of their IPR performance of Cumparsita Vals,  a waltz-time reimagining of the classic tango La Cumparsita by Argentine composer Pablo Aslan:

Flutist Carmen Maret holds Master's degrees in both flute and ethnomusicology; guitarist Andrew Bergeron is also an accomplished composer.  Later we'll post more of their IPR session on this site - watch this space!
