ON TOUR NOV 2016
Chango Spasiuk (Argentina)
Accordion magic and deep swing from Argentina!
At home in Argentina, Chango Spasiuk is considered the new hero of chamamé, the music ‘with the deepest swing in Argentina’; a warm-hearted, accordion-based style that taps into native Guarani, Spanish, Criollo and Eastern European roots. Its natural home is the red lands and lush jungles of north-east Argentina, where Spasiuk was born to a family of Ukrainian immigrants.
A fiery and sensitive virtuoso on his accordion, he brings rare charisma to his live performances: his rapt, dervish-like stage presence and his extraordinary ensemble make for music of profound beauty and feeling, infusing melancholy with resilient optimism.
Winner of a BBC World Music Award and nominated for a Latin Grammy, Spasiuk makes a long awaited return to Britain with this autumn tour – not to be missed!
