In this special evening two Latin American artists are celebrating the launch of their new releases.

NYC-based Tangolandó, headed by singer Sofía Tosello and Yuri Juárez, are introducing their debut self titled CD album.

“It is surprising the incredible expressiveness that they get with the mix of tango music with some particular elements from jazz and classical music.” -Tangodanza - Germany
“One unusual formula that aimed to broadens the expressive power of tango.” -Composer Gustavo Beytelmann
“Really surprising... a range of colours I have hardly ever seen.” -La semana on line – Berlin, Germany
Tangolandó is the encounter of the tango with Afro-Peruvian music, a journey integrating sounds born from the need of communication and exchange in Latin-American music. The penetrating passion of tango together with the sensuality and mischievousness of the Afro-Peruvian and creole genres give life to this meshed, fluid and organic approach from Sofia Tosello and Yuri Juárez. From the accordion's melancholic sounds to the rogue beat of the cajon, Tangolando recreates in a perfect balance timeless tangos through the freshness of Peru's coastal contemporary music.
“The next wave in Latin-American jazz may well begin with Tosello." -Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times
"Yuri Juarez has a unique “vocal” style of playing. He spits and rolls out his notes as if he were employing tongue and lips and palette as well as fingers and thumbs on both hands" -Raul da Gama, All About Jazz
