About Cantiga

Acoustic trio
A glamorous, talented and diverse trio of professional musicians based in London.

Created by a glamorous, talented and diverse trio of professional musicians based in London, CANTIGA brings the fantastic sound and unique combination of oboe, cor anglais and guitar to events, functions, and any special occasions that you need to host. WHAT WE DO From corporate entertainment to weddings, receptions, openings and galas there is nothing like the sound of live music to set the mood and atmosphere. It can warm any space to welcome guests, fit around speeches and work with your catering arrangements to provide an elegant and seamless finish. WEDDINGS & CIVIL CEREMONIES If you are getting married in a church, CANTIGA can perform traditional music before, during and after the service. If you are getting married in an alternative venue, CANTIGA can perform your choice of music as part of the ceremony or to set the mood. If we have played at your ceremony, we can move with you and be ready to play at your reception with the minimum of time and fuss. PRIVATE RECEPTIONS, DINNERS & COCKTAIL PARTIES CANTIGA can provide the perfect background music for your party, whether it is a formal or informal dinner, a drinks party, lunch or tea. Gentle bossa novas, popular tunes, jazz standards, classical and romantic repertoire can add a special something without being intrusive or overpowering. CORPORATE DINNERS, GALAS & EVENTS CANTIGA can provide a glamorous look whilst providing the music that enhances the mood of your event. Amplification can be used for larger venues and you may choose to have our music as background or a set period of performance to break up your programme. Choice of music can be discussed or advised just as you wish. REPERTOIRE Our sets can include a mixture of jazz standards, light and popular classics and classical, and all of our music has been specially arranged for this unique combination of instruments. Our speciality is the 'seductive' latino sound of the bossa nova. We are keen to understand your wishes and make your occasion perfect for you. Listen to our excerpts and choose your music or ask us to make an appropriate selection on your behalf. You may wish to discuss any special request with us and arrangements can be made to accommodate your individual needs.
