Alejandro Brittes Trio

Aug 11, Sunday - 5pm
Montgomery Theater Stage

Hailed by The Boston Globe as a “premier exponent of chamamé”, composer and researcher Alejandro Brittes explores his chamamé heritage, an ancestral rhythm connecting us with the Earth and the Universe through music and dance, born of the encounter between the ritual musicality of the indigenous Guaraní and Baroque music.

Having toured extensively in South America and Europe, Brittes recently completed a Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Iber Exchange-supported 2023 U.S. East Coast Tour, performing at the Library of Congress, Georgetown University, Hamilton College, The Trust PAC (PA), Levitt Pavilion (CT) and other venues.

Selected as a 2024 UP NEXT! artist at the annual conference of International Association of Performing Arts Presenters in NYC, composer and researcher Brittes also conducts multilingual masterclasses, residencies, academic talks, and workshops with institutions and ensembles regarding the history and culture of chamamé, which has been declared as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

The repertoire of his 2022 album (L)Este, includes original compositions for Baroque ensemble that explore the roots of chamamé in the context of the South American Jesuit missions. He also performs and teaches as a trio like the one performing at Summer Fest. Brittes has produced educational activities with various age and skill groups at institutions like George Mason University, Universidade Federal de Pelotas, Washington College and Morgan Arts Council.
