Illegitimates is a resistance. An adventure of friction and ideas that have been illuminated by years of friendship and unexpected meetings around the globe.

Illegitimates was formed in Santiago de Chile in December 2014.  Illegitimates explores the sounds of two wooden instruments. 

Through using classical techniques but also through preparations of  their instruments and extended techniques, the duo seek to express  themselves as fully as possible and create a solid, explosive and  striking sound. They have played concerts in Chile and London.
