Emoción is a vibrant and unique multi-national act, comprised of 5 world-class musicians. Originally inspired and united by a passion for the sounds and rhythms of Tango Nuevo, this ensemble truly celebrates the universal power of music.
The group’s nationalities reflect the global fusion of their repertoire – a Lebanese singer, Peruvian violinist, Venezuelan cellist, Belgian pianist and German percussionist.
Having studied at Europe’s most eminent conservatoires, they played for prestigious European orchestras before meeting in the Qatar Philharmonic.
The quintet wear their name well, as they invite you to experience a whirlwind of emotional states through a rich multilingual repertoire.
Emoción is definitely not your typical fusion music ensemble. The quintet seem to have lived a few musical lives before embarking on a personal journey where they blend their classical influences, chanson, tango, jazz and Middle Eastern mystery and rhythms.
From Qatar to New York, classical roots, jazz to traditional and contemporary Latin rhythms, Emocion’s repertoire mesmerizes audiences, keeping them longing for more. Think Piazzolla covers, original milongas, rhythmic oriental pieces , French chanson, theatrics and South American folklore.
Their versatile performances blend live instruments, video art projections and sometimes, the odd poetry reading to bring that passion to a reflective state.
Emoción have entertained audiences on iconic stages from the Middle East across Europe to the United States. Their corporate clients have included embassies, national banks, luxury brands and opulent hotels.
