AWIL 240 - Martin Alvarado

 Tango’s premier vocal ambassador Martin Alvarado on this A World in London! Click here:

We’re always in the presence of greatness when Martin Alvarado sings in our studio with his magnificent voice that can move mountains, conjure up dreams, and convey the deepest emotions. On this occasion we caught Martin in the midst of his UK tour which includes a performance at Chelsea’s trendy Pheasantry tonight – Nov 9th. Before he heads off to Buenos Aires for his next set of gigs he’ll be putting the finishing touches to his new album - forthcoming on the ARC label next month - set to quench the musical thirst of existing fans worldwide and create new ones! Listen in to this AWIL to hear more from Martin, and an exclusive first play on British radio of ‘Keesher Bar’ by Geoff Smith & Tolgahan Cogulu on fluid dulcimer & microtonal guitar!
