María Volonté is an Argentine singer and songwriter, Carlos Gardel Prize winner (Argentina’s Grammy), a Latin Grammy nominee, and member of the Tango Hall of Fame. She is a powerful creative force whose entrancing creative expression has fascinated critics and audiences around the world. Called “the best-kept secret of Argentinian Tango” (Songlines Magazine), Volonté has gathered a fervent international following which keeps her touring constantly. A singer who combines the earthiness of Edith Piaf with the sassiness of Eartha Kitt, Volonté is also a restless musical innovator who plays impressive acoustic guitar and is willing to experiment.
She is touring the states on the release of her latest album Blue Tango– a collaboration with California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer that explores the combination of tango and blues.
