ABOUT US

 

Originally trained as an historian, Valentina is Chile’s leading female folk/tango singer in the UK. Valentina is well-known in Scotland as a political exile of the Chilean regime, whose artistic output reflects and comments on this cultural background in addition to being a contemporary UK-based singer and songwriter.

 

VALENTINA AND VOCES DEL SUR made their debut at the legendary Bongo Club in Edinburgh, playing feisty songs of revolution and love. Coincidentally, it was here that Valentina met the renowned Scottish  chamber ensemble, Mr. McFall’s Chamber (with whom she also began an ongoing and  fruitful collaboration singing tango).

The band have shared the stage with Eliades Ochoa and legendary Chilean folk ensemble Quilapayún in Scotland and have toured the UK, with concerts in Portugal, Greece, Mexico and Chile, playing a broad repertoire of Latin American folk music and their own songs.

 

As part of a separate project, in April 2013 Valentina launched a CD of tango music, La Pasionaria’, with Mr McFall’s Chamber. The record features her own songs and enjoys the participation of  Argentine bandoneonist VíctorVillena (Ex-Gotan Project) and French violinist Cyril Garac. This is her second recording with the ensemble, which follows the notable disc Revolucionario’. This year the chamber group will launch their recording of Piazzolla’s masterpiece María de Buenos Aires, with Valentina singing the main role.

Daughter of Exile, Valentina’s own latest release is now available!
