Raul Azpiazu is a unique and versatile artist whose distinguished singing career includes performances at the White House and Windsor Castle in England. He is the son of DON AZPIAZU, a renowned pioneer of Latin American music throughout the world.
In the “New Era of Tango,” Raul Azpiazu and arranger Horacio Diaz revive the romantic spirit that gave birth to Tango many years ago.
The music is intimate and emotional, interweaving both Tango and Bolero with strains of the Habanera, the Andalusian Tango, and Milonga. Listeners will be delighted by the variety and richness of experience in this important new vision of Latin American music.
