Tango Del Cielo

What's engaging about this artist:

In its first week, Tango Del Cielo's album reached #2 on Billboard's classical crossover chart.

  • Tango Del Cielo is led by harpist, Anna Maria Mendieta. She has performed for Pope Benedict XVI,  President Clinton, the King and Queen of Spain, the Emmy Awards, Theater Flamenco and Leading Ladies of Tango, Josh Groban, and Barry Manilow (who calls her his favorite harpist)...to name just a few.

  • Tango Del Cielo (Tango of Heaven) features a fusion of many Latin styles including Argentine tango, Flamenco, Spanish Classical, and Latin jazz.

  • Tango Del Cielo concerts are a tribute to the history of tango in silent films, incorporating full screen as a multimedia backdrop for the first half of the show and a scrim with set staging for the second half of the show.

  • Music for the performance is arranged by Grammy Award winner and Academy Award nominee, Jorge Calandrelli, and Grammy Award winners Pablo Ziegler and Daniel Binelli, and multi-Grammy nominee Jeremy Cohen.

“What Anna Maria is doing for the Harp and Tango is fantastic. And the audience loves that.”

   – Pablo Ziegler (Multi Grammy Award Winner, Best Tango Album)

“...the only harpist who makes me turn around to watch and hear you play!”

   – Josh Groban
