C4 Trío (VEN)
The name of the award-winning C4 Trío refers to the Cuatro. This little, four-string relative of the guitar has developed from the Spanish vihuela which came to South America with the conquerors. This Spanish heritage, combined with African and indigenous elements, has generated the astonishing and charming sound world of C4 Trío which in addition to Venezuelan pieces also has plenty of room for calypso, merengue, rumba and jazz standards. This group is a must for any guitar aficionado and a real insider tip for this year’s Bardentreffen.
