Katie and Karin have an intuitive musical connection. Their collaborations to date have earned them widespread praise and their latest co-creation, Songs of the Latin Skies once again promises to enchant national audiences.
Together they journey through the great South American songbook of bossa nova, samba, salsa and tango, interpreting work by Gilberto Gil, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Luis Bonfa, Antonio Carlos Jobim and more.
Guitarist Karin Schaupp is an internationally sought-after recitalist and soloist. They combine forces to create a unique sound, putting a fresh spin on Latin jazz and classical pieces from the musical masters of South America.
The album “Songs of The Latin Skies” is 14 tracks, paying homage to this wonderful genre and showcasing two of Australia’s most accomplished talents at their finest. It all springs to life in March 2017, when Katie and Karin take to the road in a production that is designed to thrill and delight the audience.
“Katie Noonan has a voice like warm honey being decanted into melting snow. It is such a thing of beauty that finding a vessel to hold it can be difficult. Happily, in the music of acclaimed German-born classical guitarist Karin Schaupp, Noonan has found the perfect companion”
“Once again it has been such a pleasure to make beautiful music with my friend Karin. The voice and the guitar have been at the core of Latin music for centuries and it has been great fun to re-arrange them for us, showcasing some of Australia’s finest composers for the guitar. We look forward to sharing this gorgeous music with you on our national tour!” KATIE NOONAN
“This album feels like our collaboration has really come into its own. We both have a great affinity for Latin music, the guitar is very much at home there and we’ve become such great friends that the recording process has been a deep joy, both personally and musically.” KARIN SCHAUPP
