In Cambra3 we want to contribute to enhance femininity and gender equality, and to this end, besides our women group formation, we will review the most important female poets who talk about this concept, being so, actors of this contribution.
This concert will do a double work: showing a type of music that is not well known, but indeed original to our group in the field of classical music, and also helping to spread the idea of femininity and equality within our society.
Thus, in our concert all will be original and feminine.
