Suite Patagonia on Bandcamp . Bruno Sanfilippo
Suite Patagonia is available from today on Bandcamp and other platforms. It was the last work composed in Buenos Aires before I finally moved to Barcelona in 2000.
‘Dedicated to the incredible histories that harboured the lands of the Patagonia. The Cacique Sayhueque, the Patagonian Giant’s myth, the admiration of the colonists before an unknown fauna. The contact between the native ones and Magellan’s men. Curious histories that touch with the magic and the fantasy, full with myths fed by old conquerors, scanners and adventurers.
“The colourful autochthonous instrumentation with aboriginal songs, sounds of the southern fauna. The European vision of a time, of a place, of numberless histories and legends”
This album, released in 2000, is a musical representation of the history and myths of Patagonia, the land at the south-eastern tip of South America.
