GRAHAMSTOWN - DANCE (article first published : 1999-06-29)

Pianist, prima ballerina and hailed as the world's greatest player of the castanets, Sonia Amelio adds her unique style and astounding technique to the diverse Main programme of the 1999 Standard Bank National Arts Festival. She makes music with her hands and feet, and has elevated the castanets to the level of a symphonic instrument. Combining choreography and castanets, she plays symphonies - note for note - just as written by the great masters.

As Mexico's greatest export, she has elevated her art to a new expression in dance and classical music and has held concerts from Kenya to Vietnam, performing with some of the world's most respected orchestras like Russia's Novosibirsk Philharmonic.
