L.A. premiere! Of Ukrainian heritage, Argentina’s Chango Spasiuk is a virtuoso of the accordion and a leading performer of chamamé. This powerful, accordion-based folk genre of northeast Argentina blends complex African and Creole-Spanish rhythms with the sounds and styles of the indigenous Mbya-Guaraní Indians and of Central and Eastern European immigrants. The award-winning Spasiuk has revitalized chamamé, much in the way that fellow Argentine Astor Piazzolla bred new life into the tango.
