While living in Argentina for several years Craig Einhorn and Pablo Figueroa met in a folk music club in Buenos Aires, Argentina called La Peña del Colorado. They became friends and eventually formed a bicultural collaboration involving the performance of Argentine music styles as well as other Latin American Styles and American music. During their May 2019 tour of Oregon they will perform instrumentals and songs including: Tango, Milonga, Chacarera, Zamba, Chamame, Chamarrita as well as popular songs in Spanish and/or English. Their repertoire is diverse and includes unfamiliar and familiar genres. Pablo is a true virtuoso of the classical guitar with a specific technique that can only be developed in Argentina. Craig is a bilingual singer, versatile guitarist, and percussionist. They will also inform their audiences about Argentine music and engage them in question and answer opportunities. This is a once in a life time opportunity to experience Argentine Music played by a musician with deep roots in the Santa Fe province of Argentina along with an American with an ever growing understanding of his friend’s music.
