Spanish vocalist Irene Atienza and Brazilian guitarist Douglas Lora stand at the intersection of the great musical traditions of their respective countries. The duo interprets the classic Latin catalogue of boleros, fados, tangos, sambas, and bossa-nova revere tradition, but their repertoire also includes new and thoroughly modern compositions. Matched with Atienza and Lora’s artistry, the results is a performance experience that is intimate, sophisticated, and powerful. This will be Lora’s second Lotus appearance: in 2015, he wowed us as part of Trio Brasileiro.
