Chris Vasquez – Tango songs from Buenos Aires, Latin boleros, and classic American songs.

Another talented repat has returned to home to Buffalo. Internationally recognized tango singer Chris Vasquez moved back in 2015, after traveling the world for years, performing at illustrious venues and entering top competitions. Chris has developed a breadth of singing abilities that concentrate on the world of tango music. Now Chris plans on continuing his singing career based out of Buffalo, starting with a show at the Montante Cultural Center on Saturday, October 8.

Tangos that illuminated the elegant Argentinean movies of Carlos Gardel are highlighted as well as music that stems from the crude brothels of Buenos Aires, where the tango was born.

At the concert, Chris plans on performing tangos of Buenos Aires, Latin boleros, and classic American songs. Chris came away with best singer at The International Tango Music Competition hosted by the New York Consulate of Argentina, and was a finalist in the Medellín International Tango Festival. His one-man show about the life of the legendary tango singer Carlos Gardel, The Son of Tango will be accompanied by Moshe Schulman and Moshe Ben Abraham. Tango enthusiasts will not want to miss this spectacular performance at Canisius College.
