A journey through the ages. The birth of a new world.

World-premiere musical about the origins of the Cuatro, an iconic Latin American string instrument. The familiar tones of this instrument which have evolved and transformed through centuries of immigration – forced, and willing – have defined a culture.

Witness history and join in the music that endured countless generations, traveled through continents, and sparked traditions.

Conceived by Venezuelan-Canadian director Juan Souki (Miami New Drama’s Viva la Parranda), and with original music by Grammy-nominated virtuosi ensemble C4 Trio, Papá Cuatro takes us through the epic journey of an instrument that was born in the royal courts of the Spanish Renaissance, and found it’s lasting voice in the plains of South America. Now, centuries later, its sound will echo the globe.
