LSE Arts evening concert

Date: Monday 11 April 2011 
Time: 6.30-8pm
Venue:  Shaw Library, Old Building

Blas Flor began playing music at the age of 10 under the guidance of some of the most accomplished players of the 36 string Paraguayan harp, an instrument as representative of that distant Latin American country as the Irish harp of Ireland.   

From an early age, he began composing in a style all his own, which blends the warm melodies of Paraguay's traditional "guaranias" and vibrant polkas with more contemporary sounds, thus becoming a pioneer of the Paraguayan Folk Rock and Electro Rock sounds.

This unique concert will offer the audience an opportunity to experience the traditional sounds of Paraguayan music at its best, plus Blas Flor's own compositions that have a truly modern twist.

This concert is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For more information, email arts@lse.ac.uk or call 020 7107 5342.

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
