“Latin people are so lively…”, “You can recognize Latin people right away…”, “Latin people are this way and that way…”. Everybody has said or thought something like this at one time. Valiente’s decided to talk about these things in her new show “Latina”… or even better: to sing about this things!

“Latina“ is the perfect and exciting amalgamation of the two things that have become Valiente’s trademark: oldies and Latin. In this show the most wonderful melodies of the 50s and the 60s, that everybody know and love, are mixed in a surprising way with the most various Latin American rhythms. From salsa, mambo and cha cha cha, through Merengue, Bachata and Bossa Nova, to Tango, Rumba oder Calypso: This fusion has been thought through and worked over by the Venezuelan multitalent Carlos Pino-Quinta, in order to take the audience onto a unique emotional trip.

Beloved evergreens in Spanish, English, Italian, German, Portuguese and French, united with Latin beats and this all wrapped up with humor and a wink? Exactly that is “Latina”!

Of course, Valiente´s single “Unicornio” is also in the show!

** Carlos Pino-Quinta has been active in the Austrian music scene for over 15 years as a composer, arranger, producer and conductor. In his career he’s composed music and conducted the orchestra for the Viennese Volksoper and the Konzerthaus, he’s made arrangements for the production and concerts of star tenor Juan Diego Flórez and he’s been responsible as a arranger and music director of the ball season of the Hofburg Palace for almost 10 years. With his label REChord Sounds, he was nominated for the Latin Grammy Awards in the category Best Classic Production for the album of the soprano Nathalie Peña Comas.

After the successful team work with Valiente on the single “Unicornio”, this duo faces his second big goal: Latina. In this show Maestro Pino-Quinta isn’t only the producer, but the musical director and arranger.
