27th to 31st July – ECCO tour to Wales

El Sueño Festival, 28th to 30th July Machynlleth Wales

“La estrella de la esperanza continuará siendo nuestra”

In the words of the Chilean songwriter Victor Jara who is the inspiration behind the festival El Sueño Existe “The star of hope continues to be ours.” Mauricio Venegas-Astorga, Joint Artistic Director of Musiko Musika and whose Anglo-Chilean band Quimantu will be headlining at El Sueño this year, is a wonderful example of the powerful mix of musical brilliance, poetry and social justice that characterises Victor Jara’s legacy.

 “There are echoes of the quality and the folk integrity of fellow Chileans Inti Illimani and somewhere, partly through the honesty and integrity of it all, one feels the passionate legacy of Victor Jara.” Jan Fairley, fRoots Magazine

 This will be the first tour by the ECCO outside England. During the festival weekend the ECCO will also be leading workshops and inviting the festival audience to be part of the ECCO as they perform their characteristically diverse repertoire with an exuberance and spirit that lifts and inspires everyone.

 As ECCO player Kaylei comments: “I think it is important for the ECCO to tour outside London because we can experience other cultures and styles of music they have. It expands others’ perceptions of music and increases publicity so a wider range of people can experience our sense of fun, family, community and love.”
