In a nutshell
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!
What to expect
Chango Spasiuk is a charismatic, dervish-like performer accompanied by an excellent trio, so expect music with passion, deep feeling and a lot of swing.
