About: In Muelle Barón (Valparaíso)
The Ensemble Transatlántico de Folk Chileno is an independent ongoing project that gathers diverse musicians from Chile and abroad, where everyone has a place, regardless of their age, social status, religion, or political position.

Its main objective is to create and perform music of Chilean (and other participating countries') inspiration, through an orchestra formed by all kinds of acoustic instruments, from the classical and folk tradition.

The original repertoire, written by members of the Ensemble, includes – on the Chilean side – styles as diverse as the cueca, huayno, "huachaca" (popular) jazz, Mapuche (native) singing, and even the rhythms of African descent, a legacy which is largely unrecognized in Chile.

Being a non-traditional orchestra, the musicians avoid using sheet music in their concerts, so there is constant visual communication with the audience, thereby generating a lively atmosphere where everyone is invited to participate, either by dancing or singing.

So far, more than 100 musicians have been part of the Ensemble, which currently has about 30 active musicians in Chile, located mainly in the regions of Valparaiso and Santiago.

In this way, we have a diverse, multicultural, and transversal group, which seeks to represent the Chile of today, connecting it with the rest of the world, inviting everyone to rediscover its own traditional music without prejudices or restrictions, building a global community that will share and support the different projects that might arise from this experience.
