Latin American Songs

Constanza Guzmán
MABO - Lycée Maria-Boodschap - Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles

In this course you’ll learn to sing in Spanish and in Portuguese.  You’ll practice the Latin American rhythms by dancing to the sound of your own bodily percussions.  You’ll exercise singing in different voices…

The Latin American continent’s musical traditions offer a large diversity of styles (joropo, zamba, cueca, the Cuban sound, bolero, chacarera etc…)

There are many authors-composers, texts and magnificent melodies to explore and discover.

This course is open to all levels of experience.  Knowledge of the Spanish or Portuguese languages is not required.

Constanza Guzmán

Singer Constanza Guzman, of Chilean origin, was born in Belgium.  She studied at the Flemish Conservatory of Music, in Brussels, for a couple of years, as well as in several Latin American countries (Chile, Argentina, Brazil.)

Constanza consecrates herself essentially to jazz and to South American music, where she searches for her roots.

Many trips to Chile, Argentina and Brazil have furthered this search, and led her to compose her own songs.  Her voice, her manifest inner life and her charisma incited several talented musicians (Pierre Van Dormael, Guillermo García de Quilapaún…) to offer her their services.

In her music, Constanza places all her inner strength and her voice, in order to assure the continuity of her musical references, the singers and composers Violeta Parra, Silvio Rodriguez, Victor Jara or Chico Buarque.

Constanza has performed in concerts and in festivals in Belgium, France, Germany and Holland.
