La Doctrina and then Camila Y Silvio kicked off the three day Latin American festival of arts and culture at the Phil Music Room. And it was magnificent.
A Chilean double bill at the Music Room tonight.
Camila Y Silvio‘s music is deep rooted in South American folklore traditions, but with up to date arrangements of, mostly, Andean sounds. A bright and breezy set from them was a joy and kept us entertained for the bulk of the evening.
Openers, La Doctrina are a more eclectic outfit, meshing blues, funk together with more Chilean folk. Their’s was a powerful set. They’re no strangers to Liverpool, having played here many times before. We gather they’re sticking around for a few days more and if you get the chance to see them, then you should.
All in all, a great night from Luma Creations, who deserve massive credit for making this happen in the current climate.
