Our name

 

ASTURIA is derived from the works of the famous Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz. His composition «Asturia» became the first modern treatment in the work of the group and since then is its hallmark. The composition has not only a Spanish flavor, which is visually suitable for the artists of quartet. First of all it is the passion, the temperament, expression and emotions, the powerful energy and a game of contrasts. All these qualities are the priority in the creation of new interpretations, regardless of style and trends, as well as the main emotions that girls want to pass from the stage to the audience.
