Mavi Diaz & Las Folkies/Maria Volonté: Blue Tango Project

comment

July 16. The saying goes that it takes two to tango, and here the Bearsville Theater welcomes a pair of award-winning, female-led acts from the homeland of tango itself, Argentina. Rather than focusing on the country's best-known musical export, though, Mavi Diaz & Las Folkies instead specialize in its likewise deep rural folk music (Mavi is the daughter of harmonica virtuoso Hugo Diaz and founded the group Viuda e Hijas de Roque Enroll). Although, as one might guess from their name, the Latin Grammy-nominated Maria Volonté: Blue Tango Project is all about the sensuous urban-born dance music that comes to mind when one thinks of the South American nation, they also add a strong element of a similarly emotional style, the blues, to their sultry mix. (Feast of Friends pay tribute to the Doors on July 1; reggae singer Jesse Royal blesses up July 7.) 7pm. $20, $25. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com.
