María Volonté / Blue Tango Project
Hailing from the colorful and gritty La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, the María Volonté / Blue Tango Project is a ground-breaking exploration of the emotional and musical crossroads where tango and the blues embrace. It is a collaboration between Argentine Latin Grammy nominee María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer.
This globe-trotting duo celebrates the deep spiritual bond that joins tango and the blues, as two musical genres born of desire and lost innocence, many times censored yet always resurgent and speaking directly to our hungry souls.
Booked at SXSW in Texas, the San Francisco Jazz Festival and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles; nominated for a Latin Grammy and featured on National Public Radio’s (NPR) Tiny Desk Concert Series, the María Volonté / Blue Tango Project performs soulful songs that embrace music as a path to a deeper and more connected life.
