Steve Kirby’s Longitude Project represents a whole set of compositions and arrangements that track musical styles from the tip of South America through to the northernmost points of Canada. Argentina will be represented by the tango, Peru by the pan flute sound and Brazil by the Carnival energy of samba music. Moving north, we’ll hear the ranchero sound representing Bolivia, “reggae en Español” for Panama, and a jazz take on mariachi music for Mexico. Heading into North America, Kirby has put together a North-South-East-West collage to capture the character of the US, a First Nation piece invoking the medicine drum, and a portrait of the emerging Winnipeg sound. The northward trek will end with a piece that carries the imprint of Nunuvut and Inuit throat-singing.
