New York, New York, January 19, 2011 - Silvana Deliugi, the Argentine Nueva Tango queen who the New York Times says, "bent tango to the purposes of a modern, wide-ranging musician," whose music has been applauded because of it's, "...swing behind the anticipation, it's that sound and swagger of sex made audible," will be gracing New York City with a rare appearance at The Zinc Bar on Thursday, February 10, 2011 at 9pm, 11pm and 1am. Joining Ms. Deluigi will be Emilio Solla on piano, Juan Pablo Jofre on bandoneon, Pablo Aslan on bass and Robby Ameen on drums.
John Seroff of JazzTimes says:
"The recent renaissance of nueva tango has yet to acquire an American mainstream figurehead, someone both talented and accessible enough to attract the attention of an audience unfamiliar with the style and tradition of the genre. But with any luck, Silvana Deluigi stands as good a chance as any to fit that bill. Her astonishing U.S. debut album is a rethinking of the tango that recasts the genre into a beast as dark, sexy and subversive as it has ever been."
Kip Hanrahan, who produced her U.S. debut album, YO!, for the American Clave label back in 2006 sets a mood for Silvana's artistry like no other:
"So Silvana walks on stage and everything else kind of falls away. Yeah, the lighting, the proportions of the stage, the distance between the listener, the observer, and the singer, actress, everything. I've seen it, I've been there. If she walks into the frame of the movie, everything else becomes a distant, shaded, background: the other actors, the lighting; and, as only in others of the rarest cases of charisma, the framing actually dissipates. Again, I've seen it.
A lethal blend of French musette, baroque classical, Spanish pop, tango and jazz orchestration along with Argentinean vocalist Deluigi's silky and seductive crooning, Yo! is a beguiling treat, by turns soothing, ominous and erotic. Producer Kip Hanrahan has assembled some fairly disparate elements into a very solid, contiguous work. The swirling cabaret avalanche of "Cuesta Abajo" is strangely comfortable sandwiched between the tantalizing stop-and-start slow dance of "La Cumparsita" and the somnambulant, bass-heavy "Sonamos el Tango"; Deluigi's densely nuanced voice provides a through-line on which to hang any number of different moods and sensations from joy to dread. Indeed, one of the album's stand out tracks, the traditional "A la Una Yo Naci," is a minute and a half of Deluigi plaintively singing without accompaniment.
