Voces Festival, the Second Festival of Chilean & Latin American Voices in Great Britain will take place from Friday 9 November to Sunday 11 November 2018 at the Lyric Hammersmith, London, W6 0QL, three days of celebrations of the remarkable impact of Chilean and other Latin American musicians, poets and artists based in the United Kingdom and those with whom they collaborate. 

On Saturday evening the Voces Youth Ensemble, which is made up of young musicians pursuing careers in music as soloists and chamber musicians, will perform music by Mauricio Venegas-Astorga in a programme inspired by the poetry of Gabriela Mistral. This will be followed by Musiko Musika’s ECCO youth orchestra in a programme of world music reflecting the influence of Latin American music and culture on the group's development.

The final festival concert features musicians from the Chilean and Latin American community in the UK and their collaborators, including Mauricio Venegas-Astorga's Anglo-Chilean band Quimantu, soprano Patricia Rozario, Mark Troop, Gambian Griot Musa Mboob, Tony Corden and Alejandro Reyes (former member of the iconic group Cuncumén), and Daniel y Juan Jiménez.
