Altamar Latin Quartet offers a rich combination of lively rhythms and harmonic influences from the continent of Latin America. Corina Poore was born in Uruguay and Joan Shenton in Chile. They were at school together in Buenos Aires and began singing at various London venues in the 70s  which included the PizzaExpress Notting Hill Gate. They have been joined by the acclaimed Venezuelan percussionist Wilmer Sifontes and virtuoso guitarist Ramiro Nocelli from Argentina.

The band has enjoyed a successful residency in early 2019 at the Troubadour in Old Brompton Road and has performed at the Pheasantry. It has also been featured on London Live TV.
