Los Ventrilocuos Duo – music 50 feet below ground level.

As part of their Pre-Olympic Musical Run-Up the Brunel Museum have organised an extraordinary concert venue 50 feet below the ground (At least it won’t be cancelled due to the rain!)

Playful, moving and highly musical, this duo will make you feel the joy of Latin America with an originality that will  touch your soul. Mauricio’s soaring Kena flute solos perfectly complement Camilo’s complex Latin strumming rhythms, producing a compelling mixture of familiar melodies with unexpected musical wit.

The Brunel Museum we are continuing a tradition begun by the Brunel: the Band of the Coldstream Guards last played here in 1827.

It is cool down there, really cool so  bring something warm to wear!
