Kunataki is an ensemble dedicated to exposing some of Latin America’s most exquisite music with a special emphasis on Afro-Peruvian music and ‘cancion criolla’. The founders of Kunataki, Oscar Poncell and Claudia Osegueda have created this musical project to pay tribute to the folkloric traditions of Peru and Afro-Latin culture.
Kunataki has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Afro-Cuban legends Felix Baloy and Sixto Llorente. They were also chosen as a support act for world renowned Chilean ensemble Illapu for their 2013 Melbourne show. The band has performed at venues such as Frankston Arts Centre, Bar Oussou, Vamos Bar, Spanish Club, Open Studio, just to mention a few. Kunataki has also had the opportunity to play at various music festivals such as the International Street Food Festival, Peruvian Independence Festival(Mel/Syd), Johnston street Festival, amongst others.
