Drawing from a diverse range of influences, Iaki’s distinctive style blends elements of Latin American rhythms, jazz melodies, and folk music. In this passion and nostalgia filled concert, titled ‘Harmonies Unveiled’, Iaki breathes new life into timeless classics including the iconic, ‘Balada para un loco’ by the legendary composer Astor Piazzolla. Joined by pianist Martin Pang, Iaki’s soulful voice intertwines with Pang’s virtuosic piano playing, creating a harmonious fusion of emotion and melody not to be missed.
