CONTRAFACTA ON TOUR (June 2018)After our great experience in 2017, next June we'll be in the UK again. Our proposal is open to both public and private audiences, traditional or singular venues. If you want to enjoy a musical meeting with us, please contact.
WHO ARE WE?
Contrafacta is a duet formed by Ingartze Astuy and Germán Torrellas, both singers and players with a large experience in music who want to make alive the huge and rich repertoire of Early and Classical music, with a very special attention to Spanish music.
WHY A MUSICAL MEETING? IS IT NOT A CONCERT?
Of course it is, but we want our audience to share with us not only music, but also comments, questions or a glass of wine. Our aim is that everyone feels comfortable and part of the show.
WHAT DO WE PLAY?
We love all kinds of classical music, from Medieval songs to Renaissance and Baroque repertoire, and also opera arias or religious music (it depends on the audience and place in which we perform). We present different voice-instrumental combinations, which can be two voices "a capella", voice and guitar or voices and viols (this is probably the most singular part of our performance: two people playing and singing four voices). We also perform popular songs: french chansons, tango, copla, jazz... ask for your favourite piece and we can prepare it specially for you.
AND... WHAT ABOUT MONEY?
Our performances can be paid both by a cachet (that is not very high -or so we think- and depends on the fact that the show is public or private) or by crowfunding (each person who comes can pay a stablished fee, that depends on the number of attendants)*.
PLEASE, CONTACT US
If you want more information, have any doubts, or if you are already excited with the idea of hiring us, pleas contact by email here, or phone (00 34 607 695 541. also through Whatssapp).

For example, for a private concert for 30 people, each one usually pay about 10 pounds.
