The Old Church, Portland's Historic Events Venue, presents Maria Volonte, in concert. Winner of the Gardel Prize, a Latin Grammy nominee and member of the Tango Hall of Fame, Maria Volonte is an Argentine singer, guitarist and composer celebrated for the intense emotion and beauty of her songs as well as for her charisma and sensuality on stage.
"Volonte is a good example of an artist who is respectful of her roots yet not afraid to go beyond musty old formulas Her musical concept is refreshingly broad."
-The Los Angeles Times.
"She can mix an intimate treatment of tango classics by the great Astor Piazzolla with songs from Chile and Brazil, along with echoes of late-night jazz and Latin-blues fusion.
She has a cool, emotional style, plays impressive acoustic guitar, and is willing to experiment."
-The Guardian (UK)*
"Maria Volonte combines the earthiness of Edith Piaf with the sassiness of Eartha Kitt." Jazz Perspectives
