In a nutshell
The first London show in more than seven years for the Argentine singer songwriter and his big band.
Kevin Johansen moved from Alaska to Argentina as a child before moving to New York where he formed The Nada to perform his bittersweet, often bilingual, songs which draw on his border and genre hopping roots. Now based in Argentina for many years be is one of the country’s most acclaimed songwriters whose songs appeal to fans of Jorge Drexler and Fito Paez but who uniquely inhabits his own pan-American musical world as the leading Sub-Tropicalista.
What to Expect
Beautiful songs drawing on Kevin’s love of popular music from Fairbanks, Alaska to Tierra del Fuego in styles ranging through cumbias, tangos, milongas and chanson, all played by an immaculate big band.
What people are saying
'Whether in English or Spanish the much-travelled singer’s left-field take on Latin music is quite beautiful' The Observer
'Random, witty and sometimes reckless the songs are as catchy as they come and Johansen a naturally engaging storyteller, switches with ease from Spanish to English like a true migrant. This is the soundtrack of a mobile globe and of a city full of wanderers, tramps and people in transit.' The Independent
