Chamber music for the outdoor

La Tortuga Alada (The winged turtle) is an imaginary animal whose particular anatomy draws us to
an ambiguous being that scurries restlessly and, at the same time, achieves weightlessness. In
these two antipodes is the musical project created in 2017 by the Colombian saxophonist and
clarinetist María Valencia and the Argentine cellist Violeta García, who exceed the rigorousness of
jazz and contemporary chamber music, placing their explorations at the limit of improvised music
and instant composition.
