Daniel Melingo is one of the quirky celebrities of the Buenos Aires tango scene. He’s a singer and actor with a gruff voice and a stage persona that veers between Charlie Chaplin and Tom Waits. But he’s also an impressive multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, keyboards and clarinet, and has set out to provide new and often experimental settings for Argentina’s most celebrated dance style. As ever, he sings about his city’s lowlife, and uses the persona of a linyera (a vagabond) as the starting point for his unusual and sophisticated songs. The opener, La Cancion De Linyera, is a jaunty tango driven on by the bandoneon concertina, but elsewhere he adds bluesy guitar lines and jazzy trombone, and includes a charming, crooned treatment of a song by the great Chilean singer Violeta Parra, and his own setting of a Lorca poem.
World Village releases praised in Songlines Magazine!
Violons Barbares - Saulem Ai:
"Ornate melodies alongside rock-like string riffs and robust hand percussion, and there’s a sense of humour, with one track titled ‘Saturday Yurt Fever’. There is a broad range of tunes, and democratic apportioning of solos and accompaniment makes for a seamless fusion."
Mamani Keita - Kanou:
"Mali is already blessed with a surfeit of fine female artists and Mamani Keita is sure to get the share of the limelight she deserves if she keeps making records as good as Kanou." Top of the World
En Chordais, Kyriakos Kalaitzidis - The Musical Voyages of Marco Polo:
"With such a stirring tale of adventure in distant places it is hard not to get carried away in your imagination… for armchair traveling the rest of this disc can’t be beaten." 4 Stars

We sent Yo-Yo Ma and many of his close friends from all over the world to a theatrical props warehouse in Brooklyn to jam and it is ridiculous

This is so great! Such a talented group.

"The descendents of isolated Siberian herdsmen make serious, strangely universal music out of some of the planets quirkiest acoustics and their amazing technique of "throat singing," in which one voice sings two and even three notes simultaneously. According to the Los Angeles Times, "When a Tuvan sings praises of mother and country, which is what a Tuvan usually sings, he often does it in three-part harmony. By himself."
Huun Huur Tu -The Tuvan Throat Singers will perform on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 7 & 9 pm. Tickets are priced at $25-$39. Tickets are available online at www.harriscenter.net or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, CA, facing East Bidwell Street…”
