Landscapes Of 'Latin_America'
As the name suggests the aim of the LOLCHOIR is to paint the Landscapes of Latin-America through the sound of its music, from Mexico to Argentina via Spain.
The are plenty of choirs in London but none -that I know- focused strictly on repertoire from Latin America. There are countless wonderful songs and melodies to sing so why not?
Singing is one of my favourite things in life and I love sharing that passion with people, it is fun, relaxing, healing, and very accessible to every one so why not? There is another aspect of the "why", and it is to create a space where people can either practice Spanish, learn it or basically get back to their roots if they are Spanish speakers but living in London there is not much space to sing in their mother tongue. Many more reasons exist, lets say we'll do it to feed our souls :).
We meet at "Calthorpe Project", a community centre near King's Cross Station. [258 - 274 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8LH]. As some members have left London, and some people joined from far locations during the lockdown, we also have the option of joining online via Zoom so we have people connecting from different cities in the UK, Colombia, Canada and even Australia!
Everyone willing to sing and have fun. You don't have to speak the language to join.
Participants contribute with £12 or £9 (concessions) per session.
