Dal Niente performs music by leading Latin American composers, including Nur Slim’s Humming Between Branches, in which the singer’s voice dances within widely varying instrumental textures, which shimmer, dive, and groan with kaleidoscopic virtuosity. The ensemble becomes an extension of the solo harp in Hilda Paredes’ Demente Cuerda, while in Tomás Gueglio’s Lamarque Songs, the music evokes a kind of 40s glamour - at once shy and loud, at the same time proper and unapologetically melodramatic. Luis Amaya’s Tinta Roja, Tinta Negra mesmerizes the listener with subtly shifting textures that resonate around an amplified jarana, and the concert closes with Tania León’s classic wind quintet De Memorias.
