CantoSur was created by vocalist Cecilia Esquivel and guitarist Dani Cortaza to offer Latin American music for a variety of settings. The duo is often accompanied by top musicians from the Washington DC Metropolitan Area and New York on keyboard, bass, percussion, drums, horns and other South American instruments. The size of the group ranges from a duo to a quartet or quintet, depending on the needs of the particular event.
