Blue Tango Project | Yerba Buena Gardens

Yerba Buena Gardens (Esplanade) | 773 Mission St., San Francisco, CA

Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2017 | SF

Between May and October in 2017, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents over 75 free performances on three outdoor stages in Yerba Buena Gardens.

Admission is free and entertainment includes music, theater, dance, cultural events, educational and children’s programs.

Hailing from the colorful and gritty La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, the Blue Tango Project is a groundbreaking investigation into the treacherous emotional and musical crossroads where tango and the blues embrace.

A collaboration between Argentine-born Latin Grammy-nominee María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer, the duo celebrates the deep emotional kinship shared by two oft-censored musical genres born of desire and marginality. When they play together, Volonté’s voice and guitar fill the stage with echoes of tango’s forbidden pleasures while Footer’s harmonica cries with the lament of the solitary blues soul.
