On March 21 at 7:30 PM Tenores de Aterúe return to St John’s for a concert of harmonic singing from Sardinia, Corsica and Italy.
Founded in 2008 the Tenores have performed in the US, Canada and Sardinia, where they have received popular and critical acclaim for their prowess in the art of cantu a tenore, a traditional song form that involves harmonic throat singing in parts. With complex interlocking dance rhythms magnified by ringing guttural overtones, the sound is, at once, otherworldly and infectiously downhome.
Tenores de Aterúe are Avery Book (bassu), Gideon Crevoshay (mesu oche), Carl Linich (contra), and Doug Paisley (oche). This will be the Tenores first tour since traveling to Sardinia last May where, says Book, “we learned more in three weeks than in the five years before. We are excited to share with American audiences new songs and nuances of our post-Sardinia sound.”
