LA FANFARRIA DEL CAPITÁN
The band La Fanfarria del Capitán was born 204 in Argentina with Victoria Cornejo, Jerónimo Cassagne and Francisco Mercado. Creators of the Latin Fanfare, genre that fuses Balkan folklore with Latin rhythms.
From 2011 we began with our international tour, reaching the route up to 7 months a year. In this time the band added to its formation musicians from different countries like Germany, Holland, Greece, Brazil, Spain, Russia, China, Japan and Kasajastán that provided versatility and color to our artistic proposal. Today the Captain’s ship is much more than a band, it’s a way of life!
Our mission: Travel around the world sharing and expanding the boundaries of our music!
