Following concerts in Zurich and Vienna, María Volonté gave a concert at Belgrade’s prestigious Dom Sindikata theater before 1000 people who gave her a standing ovation.
In the three cities, Volonté fascinated European audiences with her unique approach to the music of Argentina and her passionate stage presence.
Most of her repertory was drawn from her new CD “Yo soy María” in which she fuses the classic songs of tango with jazz and bossanova. The celebrated Gypsy trumpet player Ekrem Sajdic was guest artist and accompanied María on “Nostalgias.”
In addition to the material from her new CD, Maria also performed songs that have become an inseparable part of her musical life: “La Pomeña” (an Argentine zamba, “Macorina” (composed by Chavela Vargas) y “La Flor de la Canela” (composed by Chabuca Granda) in an exquisite version with her voice joined only by the notes of an upright bass.
She also performed several new songs, including two candombes that María composed with Javier Malosetti and Daniel Maza.
On this tour organized by INTREPID PATROL artist management of Beverly Hills, California, María was joined by Argentine musicians Oscar Giunta (piano), Pedro Giraudo (upright bass), Fabián Miodownik (drums and percussion) and Rubén Slonimsky (bandoneon).
