Auditorio de Tenerife and Asociación Tinerfeña de Amigos de la Música (Atadem) organise this three-concert series with the purpose of showing quite unusual music on the island. It is coordinated by Conrado Álvarez and Rosario Álvarez as artistic director, who explains that “there is a wide range of piano, vocal and chamber repertoires from America that have been composed using their own regional languages, which are the result of the development of each area after Independence”.
