SILVIA ABALOS Y CANTANGO

Description

At the end of the 19th century, around 3 million people had left their origins and families in search of a better destination in the city of Buenos Aires. Among them many Europeans, in particular from Italy, and many people from the Argentinean countryside.
Tango was at that time practiced in the margins of Buenos Aires’ social life, in poor neighborhoods, outside in the streets, in brothels.
Musically, the tango has always been mostly performed by male musicians, but this has now changed, as is proven by ‘Cantango’ a new group around singer Silvia Abalos.
‘Cantango’ consists of six fascinating female musicians and dancers who make a serious go to take over the male tango bastion.
They are all inspired and universal artists, and play their music with much professionalism, while displaying jazzy and more influences in the vocal techniques of singer Silvia Abalos, the renowned Mexican singer with a smooth and powerful voice.
