Trio Chuva
Manchester-based folk/classical ensemble

Saturday June 17 3pm


Founded in 2018 by Rafael Onyett and Borna Kuca whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music, Chuva became a trio in 2022 with the addition of double bassist George Burrage. They quickly developed a strong musical chemistry and have since performed frequently throughout the UK and particularly in the North of England at such venues as Wakefield Cathedral and Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall and Whitworth Art Gallery. Recently, Trio Chuva won a coveted place on the Live Music Now artist platform 2022 and will be working closely with the organisation to deliver interactive music workshops across the country. Although a Manchester-based ensemble, Borna originally hails from Croatia, George from Britain and Rafael is of Latin American heritage. The result is an interesting amalgamation of varied musical experiences and cultures, and an overall desire to explore music from different parts of the world. This is reflected in a diverse mixture of classical and folk repertoire and even the exploration of different folk instruments, such as the mandolin.
