ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
PABLO PEREYRA Trained as an actor and Tango singer, Pablo Pereyra has performed in numerous capacities in Buenos Aires and New York. His work recently captured the attention of Backstage Magazine, which said: "He sings with gusto, dramatic intensity, and a larger-than-life charm." His credits as a tango singer include performances with grammy award winner Raul Jaurena (bandoneon), Pianist Octavio Brunetti and Guitar virtuosos Francisco Navarro among others. Mr. Pereyra is currently the lead singer and emcee @ Manhattan's "Malbec and Tango House"
FRANCISCO "PANCHO" NAVARRO Maybe you heard him playing throughout Elliot Goldenthal's Oscar-winning soundtrack for Frida, or accompanying Plácido Domingo in a recording of Die Fledermaus made in 2003 at the Washington Opera. The Rolling Stones used Navarro on a 2006 remake of "I'm Free," their early single; Paulina Rubio ("Perros"), Cristian Castro, Victor Jara, Celia Cruz, and Armando Manzanero sang to his backing. "I always worked with my guitar to make my ends meet but I've been fortunate to meet the right people in show business," he explains modestly.
Pancho, as he's commonly known, can equal any of them. Out of his fingers comes an orchestral array of string and percussive sounds; a rhythmic and harmonic flair that few jazz musicians can equal; an elegance born of years of classical study; an arranger's sense of architecture; and a wealth of beauty, feeling, and wit.
"Influenced as much by classical acoustic guitar legends like Paco de Lucia and Andrés Segovia as by Mexican boleros and Chilean folk, his playing is crystalline and affecting." NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
