Tango sensation Sandra Luna On Tour

New York City, USA –
Argentine singer

Sandra Luna
will be touring the United states and Canada in February. Luna
has been nominated for a Grammy for the Best Traditional World Music Album and
is launching a tour that will bridge her visit to the Grammy ceremony and her
showcase at the Folk Alliance/Strictly Mundial conference in Montreal.
Cinders that burn again and again… tango is like life, and has to evolve,” says
singer Sandra Luna, paraphrasing famous tango lyricist Horacio Ferrer. On her first international release

Tango Varon
, Luna turns
her ear to the future while keeping one foot firmly in the tango’s colorful
past. On her Grammy-nominated album she expands tango music, normally associated
with dancing, to a broader more expansive song form. Tango Varón features
reenergized versions of tango classics from legends like Homero Manzi and Astor
Piazzolla, to newly created tango compositions that tell the tale of
contemporary life in Buenos Aires. (continued below tour dates)
