Luis Del Rio Album Release Show
November 13, 2016 · Sunday * 5-7pm * NO Cover
Luis Del Río plays his album-release show celebrating his second album, “Del Río”. Hailing from Durham by way of Argentina, Del Río’s music is reflective of his diverse cultural heritage. The sophomore album showcases Del Río’s fusion style of Argentine tango and American folk rock that you can’t help but dance to.
With roots in Buenos Aires and tango dancing as part of his identity, Luis Del Río’s songs are infused with tango – in both style and lyrically. True to the tango form, the lyrics are intimate, existential, and have a sense of humor. “Del Río” features a full rock band ensemble, horns, violin, bandoneón, and harmonica, backed by renowned musicians from Argentina and the United States.
“Del Río” follows his first album, “Not Mine”, with a polished splendor that will delight new and old fans alike. Luis Del Río will be joined by special guests in the backing band: Matt Phillips (guitar, backing vocals), Ittai Korman (bass), Rob Jiggets (drums), Corine Weisner (keys, backing vocals), and Esteban Gonzalez (trumpet).
