"Maria combines the sensual earthiness of an Edith Piaf with the irony and sassiness of an Eartha Kitt"
Her very name is music to the ears. Even at an early age she was the little star among the six musical daughters of an art-obsessed father.
Meantime Maria Volonté can look back over a 30-year stage career. Be it in her hometown Buenos Aires, in Montevideo or San Francisco, the halls are full and the audience and critics wild about her performances.
The CDs of Maria Volonté have received numerous awards, including the "Carlos Gardel Prize"; only recently she was nominated for the "Latin Grammy".
For the CD PORTRAIT Network has combined musical highpoints from her career with exclusive new recordings specially for this European premiere. Maria Volonté gives very personal interpretations of tangos, alludes to the musical traditions of her neighbouring countries (among them candombe from Uruguay and bossa nova from Brazil), and introduces songs by great Latin American singers, including sensitively sung ballads in the “Latin Blues” style.
A musical jewel that can now finally be marvelled at in Europe …
