Songs of the Latin Skies

‘Katie Noonan has a voice like warm honey being decanted into melting snow. It is such a thing of beauty that finding a vessel to hold it can be difficult. Happily, in the music of acclaimed classical guitarist Karin Schaupp, Noonan has found the perfect companion.’ The Australian

Two of Australia’s most loved female artists – singer/songwriter Katie Noonan and classical guitarist Karin Schaupp – are teaming up once again, bringing their new album, Songs of the Latin Skies to Melbourne Recital Centre on 30 June. The two have an intuitive musical connection. Their collaborations to date have earned them high praise and this newest co-creation, Songs of the Latin Skies once again promises to enchant audiences.

Together they journey through the great South American songbook of bossa nova, samba, salsa and tango, interpreting work by Gilberto Gil, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Luiz Bonfá, Antônio Carlos Jobim and others.

Songs of the Latin Skies features some of Latin America’s best classical, folk, jazz and pop songs arranged for the intimate combination of Noonan’s angelic and versatile voice and Schaupp’s lyrical and fiery guitar. The combined force of the two creates a unique sound, putting a fresh spin on Latin jazz and classical pieces from the musical masters of South America.

Renowned for breaking down genre boundaries Katie Noonan’s technical mastery and pure voice makes her one of Australia’s most versatile and beloved vocalists. Guitarist Karin Schaupp is an internationally sought-after recitalist and soloist.

‘We have spent most of our professional lives in very different musical worlds, but we also share a lot of common ground, an unspoken intuitive understanding of the substance of the music, regardless of its style. Our collaboration allows us both to expand our musical worlds, but it also means we put a new spin on this music, while remaining respectful of its origin.’ Karin Schaupp
