Keeping the flame alive!

El Fuego (meaning ‘fire’ in Spanish) has impressed  audiences with their synthesis of early music and folk styles; their versatility as singers and multi-instrumentalists is shown in their unique repertoire from Spain and the New World colonies.  Now based in Chapel Hill, NC, Artistic Director Salomé Sandoval has received wide acclaim for singing while providing her own continuo parts on lutes and guitars; together with period instrumentalists, El Fuego creates an unusually rich sound, full of melodic and rhythmic excitement in their performance of Villancicos, Xácaras and other sacred vocal repertoire, as well as stage music, keeping the flame of little-known musical masters burning in the 21st century.
