The illegitimate son of a French laundress in turn-of-the-century Buenos Aires, Carlos Gardel would ultimately rise to fame as one of the greatest tango singers of all time. Now the legendary tango star gets a rousing musical tribute by popular musical duo Yael & Gabriel at Club Bonafide in NYC. Yael Dray-Barel is a French-Israeli singer-songwriter influenced by rock and gypsy jazz, and her songs often incorporate the five languages she speaks. Argentinian guitarist Gabriel Hermida infuses his compositions with the essence of classical tango, flamenco and contemporary jazz. At this special concert, the pair will pay tribute to the bossa nova legend and put a spotlight on Hermida’s countryman Ástor Piazzolla, who’s credited with adding a touch of jazz and classical to tango, forging a new style called nuevo tango.
