K’antu Ensemble take their name from an ancient style of Peruvian and Bolivian music and dance. Their colourful and energetic arrangements combine elements of folk and world music with historically informed techniques, bringing early music to new audiences. They are currently promoting their second album Dancing and the Divine, following the success of Gusto, which has been featured on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, BBC Introducing, Resonance FM’s LSO Soundhub and in Early Music Today Magazine. Recent venues have included the King’s Place, Symphony Hall, Cadogan Hall’s Culford Room and St Martin-in-the-Fields where they were semi-finalists in both the 2014 and 2015 Chamber Music Competitions. They have also been broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 from London’s Southbank Centre. They are young artists for Live Music Now and received an Emerging Excellence Award from Help Musicians UK which supported their recent tour to Hungary. Future plans include tours to Romania and Hungary in 2016.
