The chamber music group El Mundo will perform at the Kaua`i Community College Performing Arts Center on Sunday, January 27 at 3 p.m. They are dedicated to performing 16th through 19th century Latin American, Spanish and Italian chamber music.

Made up of some of the finest period instrument performers, El Mundo combines bowed strings with the rarely heard accompaniment forces of mixed guitars, lutes and percussion in a setting that recreates the distinctive Latin sound of the old and new world. With their flexible instrumentation El Mundo is adaptable to meet the changing needs of this diverse repertory with the appropriate flair and affect.

With the addition of singers such as Jennifer Ellis Kampani and Nell Snaidas, El Mundo also performs exciting cantatas, zarzuelas, romances, villancicos and tonos humanos that range from sublimely sensual to light-hearted and folk-like.

Tickets are $10/students; $30/adults. Click here to purchase online.
