EUROPE TOUR 2017 Release of New Album
DESDE MÍ MISMA Tangos in voice + piano

The Argentine singer and pianist María Elía proposes in Desde mí misma (From Within Myself) a dialog with an extraordinary dynamics between the voice and piano. María provides a solid and powerful artistic identity to her work with a great deal of interpretative power in a one-cut album, resulting from the most intimate influences of her exploration on both the piano and her voice itself- a distinctive hallmark through which she deploys her authenticity and highest potential of her musical talent. These are tangos with a personal view on the works of such representative writers and composers as Contursi and Dames, Gardel and Le Pera, Cadícamo and Cobián, the Expósito brothers, Manzi and Piana among others.
The oficial release of the album was in two important hall concerts in Buenos Aires, Café Vinilo and Caff with featured guest artists. She has been performing the songs thereof in two tours in 2014 and 2015 in a series of twenty concerts in various European cities of Germany, France and Switzerland. María is now touring different cities of Argentina.
