A virtuoso musical solo which will delight the eyes as well as the ears, children and adults alike.
Santiago has done demanding research within La Mue/tte about the musician’s movements dissociation, which echoes the puppeteers’ techniques.
« A beautiful poetic moment at the Accroche-cœurs festival! With his guitar in his hand and his drums on his back, the Man-Orchestra delighted the audience. On his back, the artist wears fifteen instruments connected to his body by wires. Amazing! With an incredible dexterity and a real know-how, the Man-Orchestra plays music of Latin America, catchy. With this show, festival goers have traveled! »
