As the first in the new GL concert series, Global Lounge presented internationally acclaimed Blue Tango Project featuring artists Maria Volonte and Kevin Carrel Footer to lure and mesmerize in an intimate performance at the Sapphire Room in the Riverside Hotel.
Hailing from the colorful and gritty La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Blue Tango Project is a ground-breaking exploration of the emotional and musical crossroads where tango and the blues embrace. It is a collaboration between Argentine Latin Grammy nominee María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer.
Paired with Blue Tango is a special performance of Portuguese Fado featuring Kristine Nunes, an energetic, versatile, and diverse singer. A classically trained soprano, Kristine brings passion to every performance. On this magical night she shared the deeply inspirational tradition of Portuguese Fado music. This music reflects the soulful heritage of story telling and speaks of life, struggle and passion.
