Chango Spasiuk

A TV star in his native Argentina for Chango’s live performance always delivers. Here’s a rare opportunity to see him with his full band playing intimate venues around the UK.

The great Argentinian/Ukranian accordian player Chango Spasiuk is on tour in November, so here’s a rare opportunity to see him with his full band playing intimate venues around the UK.

In his home country of Argentina, Chango Spasiuk is famed not only as a musician, but also for being the host of his reality TV programme,  where he travels the country discovering local musical styles.

Being a virtuoso in his own right, he is considered locally as the new hero of chamamé, the music ‘with the deepest swing in Argentina’; a warm-hearted, accordion-based style that taps into native Guarani, Spanish, Criollo and Eastern European roots.

Fiery and sensitive on his accordion, he brings rare charisma to his live performances: his rapt, dervish-like stage presence and his extraordinary ensemble make for music of profound beauty and feeling, infusing melancholy with resilient optimism. Chango’s live performance always deliver.

Winner of a BBC World Music Award and nominated for a Latin Grammy, Spasiuk makes a long awaited return to Britain with this autumn tour – it’s one not to be missed!
