The Walter Silva Ensemble was launched by Walter Silva in 1995, initially, with the idea to perform his own compositions, which involve concepts from classical music blended with jazz, Brazilian music, Argentine folklore rhythms and Tango.


Since then, the Ensemble has featured flutist Laura Sola and Carlos Alemán, double bass player Luis M. Francesch and Carlos Meneses, cellist Lorena Ruiz Casaux, Irene Rouco, José Luis López and Juan Pablo Alemán, saxophonist Elio Moreno, bandoneon player Fabián Carbone and Jorge Lema, and percussionist Luis A. Espinar, José San Martín, Sergey Saprichev and, Nantha Kumar, all of them excellent musicians who come from different musical genres such as classical and ethnic music, tango, or jazz.


The warm and unmistakable sound Walter Silva delivers with his classical guitar blended with the rich textures of the other instruments give Walter Silva Ensemble its unique and distinctive character as well as a sound full of nuances.
