The Duo YAKAIRA
" It is the uncertainty that charms one. A mist makes things wonderful "
" Yakaira, in the Guarani mythology of the ancient peoples of South America, is the master of mist and fog. He played a part in the creation of the Earth along with the god Namandu "
Le Duo Yakaira was founded by two friends who were both musicians at the Conservatoire de Toulouse and who wanted to create an original connection between the power of the piano and the electrifying blast of the accordion. They are now proposing a programme which offers an escape to those far-away countries, where the intoxicating rhythm of the Argentinian tango holds sway, playing some of Astor Piazzolia’s key works : Oblivion, History of the tango,Libertango, Milonga de las palabras, Fracanapa and other sublime melodies.
