New Aires Tango is a Latin duo formed by the unique collaboration of opera and tango singer Malena Dayen and pianist/arranger David Rosenmeyer. This dynamic duo invites you to delve into each song as a whole world within itself.
Their repertoire is drawn mainly from the golden age of tango's greatest composers and singers. Yet music from other styles, such as folkloric Argentinean, Mexican and Cuban songs, are presented under the same umbrella, to reflect on the lineage and influence of the Tango tradition.
Malena’s singing encompasses a unique blend of a rich Mezzo-Soprano sound with the innate knowledge of the Tango language. She has a powerful yet subtle stage presence that allows her to assume and project a different persona and character in each song.
Malena was born and raised in Buenos Aires and has been singing tango for as long as she can remember herself. From the tango clubs in Buenos Aires to Carnegie Hall, Malena has brought her unique repertoire to night clubs and concert halls all over the world.
Malena starred as Piazzolla’s Maria de Buenos Aires with several opera companies in the US, and recently directed Bare Opera’s production of the piece in New York City.
David Rosenmeyer’s arrangements bring to the mix elements of classical music, traditional tango, improvisation, and contemporary music techniques such as minimalism combined with an avant-garde sense of experimentation. David was born in Argentina, and as an orchestral conductor, has worked with orchestras in Italy, Hungary, Israel, Mexico, Brazil, Chile and Argentina. David is also a pianist, composer and educator.
New Aires presents “Tango Desde Casa” (Tango From Home”), their brand new passion-infused show produced exclusively for Music2Meeting.
David and Malena will share their renowned artistry and charm in a program of the most famous tangos, visiting the romantic boleros form the Mexican and Cuban tradition and finishing the journey with timeless songs by Astor Piazzolla.
At the end of the program, Malena and David will be happy to answer any questions you may have about their life and career as an inspiring and committed power couple and creative collaborators.
