Blue Tango Project
Maria Volonte is an Argentine singer whose refreshing interpretation of tango stole my heart… With her mature sensuality, her music feels both deeply sensual and awash in nostalgia — a unique blend of melancholy and a potent brew. Consume responsibly.
Maria Volonté is an intriguingly versatile and original Argentinian singer and songwriter who has been nominated for a Latin Grammy… She can mix an intimate treatment of tango classics by the great Astor Piazzolla… 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.
Volonte has a long history in Argentine traditional music, and its elements enriched everything she played and sang. But, far more than just an emissary for her native country’s music, she demonstrated a desire, as well as a skill, in using those roots to grow an entrancing creative expression that is uniquely her own.
The best-kept secret of Argentinian tango… Well established and widely respected in her native Argentina, Maria Volonte is a singer who can switch between jazz and blues-influenced vocals, intimate Argentinian-style folk singing and classic big tango diva numbers.
