Nicolás Mateo en el jardín de Tai Teatro
After a year without giving a show with an audience and after closing 2020 with “No se puede vivir solo de realidad”, the concert filmed in Xirgu-Untref, Nicolás Mateo is once again stepping on stage.
This debut for 2021 will be at sunset in the garden of Tai Teatro, located in the heart of Villa Ortúzar. Mateo will perform in a soft power trio format with Ignacio Lutteri on Bass and Manuel Guzman (Ovo) on Congas. A theatrical performer with an infectiously captivating aura, he really brings you into his world with great intensity and haunting vocal cadence.

Imagine post punkers ready to party and you’ll get a feeling for this sonic cocktail of goodness. They’ll be performing at the lovely Tai Teatro with limited availability, so be sure to snap up the remaining tickets.

Barbie Martinez at Virasoro Bar
Barbie Martinez presents The Funny Standards, performing a repertoire of songs with funny lyrics such as “Peel me a grape,” “Everything I’ve got belongs to you,” “Slappin the cakes on me,” “I believe in the lies of handsome men,” and “I want to be a sideman” among others.
Martinez creates a light-hearted take on the ever so serious world of jazz, intertwining it with fantastic musicianship to produce a unique experience.
