About Correo Aereo
Correo Aereo (Air Mail) is an award winning acoustic multi-instrumental and vocal Latin/World Music Duo. They perform traditional music of Latin America: especially of Venezuela, Argentina & Mexico, as well as their own original music deeply inspired by swimming and playing in these ancient rivers of traditions while being alive to organic innovation. Dr. Juan Tony Guzman, Head of the Jazz Dept. at Luther College writes: “Listening to their performance one can unite space and time across cultures.”
Together, Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin combine an array of string and percussive instruments with silken vocal harmonies described as “locked in carnal embrace” by the Austin Chronicle. Their music is richly poly-rhythmic and soulfully melodic. Fiery, haunting, joyful! Abel sings & plays harp, guitar and cuatro. Madeleine sings & plays violins, maracas, bombo and jarana. Correo Aereo sometimes performs a duo, a trio, quartet or larger ensemble with stand up bass, accordion, clarinet and other instrumentation.
