Entre Tango Duo

2019-02-28 - Entre Tangos CD.jpg

EntreTango Duo features the extraordinary voice of Elena Gonzalez backed by Elian Sellenes on piano, and this week introduces them by way of their recently released CD. And this week will also celebrate Roberto Maida, who was perhaps Canaro’s most iconic singer but before he joined Canaro at the age of 24 his CV already included Caló, the Malerba brothers, Fiorentino, Pizarro, Gardel, and regular jams with the Prince of Wales.

That’s this Sunday on Tango Capital, 7:00pm to 8:00pm:
