Martin Alvarado: Asi es mi tango | Shackleford Pianos
Widely considered to be Argentina's finest tango singer, Martin Alvarado has performed in many major venues and festivals around the world.
Last year he picked up the Latin UK Award for Concert by International Artist of the Year and had his last album released by leading UK-based world music label, Riverboat. The album was praised by critics around the world and was defined by one magazine as the best tango album to be released in recent years.
Alvarado is chiefly renowned for his exceptional tenor voice, and has been described by BBC Radio 3 presenters Mary Ann Kennedy as "completely beguiling" and by Max Reinhardt as "totally mesmerising".
He has also won acclaim for his carefully chosen repertoire which, as well as the some tango and South American classics, includes rarely heard work by Piazzolla, work by some of Argentina's most celebrated composers and poets and some of his own compositions.
Use of concert grand piano for this performance is courtesy of Shackleford Pianos.
