“Sun Most South”
is born of the fertile creativity of Andrea Keeble (violin) and Anthony Schulz (piano accordion). Reimagining classical repertoire by De Falla, Prokofiev and Stravinsky, they weave improvisations and original compositions into an intimate duet collaboration.

What Andrea Keeble (violin) and Anthony Schulz (piano accordion) bring to Manuel DeFalla’s El Amor Brujo’; Love the Magician, a passionate expose’ of love conquering evil, and Prokofiev’s Violin Sonata, to Stravinsky, Dilermando Ries and their own works is the nexus between the ancient and new. “Sun Most South” is born of the fertile creative entities Cosmo Cosmolino, Zulya and the Children of the Underground and much more.
