• Valentina’s first recording with Mr McFall’s Chamber – Revolucionario

    Revolucionario This is a vintage record from Mr McFall’s Chamber. Valentina Montoya Martínez’ first recording with the group, featuring tangos from its golden era, modern tango and also songs from Chile. The CD is a homage perhaps to Astor Piazzolla, who revolutionized the tango but possibly also to Ché Guevara, another Argentine of great world stature. The songs that Valentina presented to Robert McFall for this CD were cassette recordings that Valentina’s mother had brought over from Chile and which Valentina was mesmerized by. Another gem from this highly talented group of musicians. Listen to samples from ‘Revolucionario’. Y somos la gente Te recuerdo Amanda

  • Valentina releases ‘La Pasionaria’ with Mr McFall’s Chamber.

    La Pasionaria – with Mr McFall’s Chamber Valentina sings her own tango songs alongside Piazzolla’s modern tangos, with Mr McFall’s Chamber. Her songs were written over a number of years and pay homage to people she has known and admired, strong women and her own mother, to whom it is dedicated. Featuring a song for Sola Sierra, an outstanding Chilean human rights activist, and one for an English poet who encouraged and believed in her as a young child, this CD is a heartfelt manifestation of admiration and love for those people that have inspired and led the way for her. Listen to samples from ‘La Pasionaria’ Cartas Madre selva
