New Aires Tango

Argentinian/Israeli artists — tango singer Malena Dayen, pianist and arranger David Rosenmeyer and bassist Or Bareket — invite us to delve into each song as a whole world within itself. The repertoire that New Aires Tango performs is drawn mainly from the golden age of tango singers and writers, yet music from other styles such as folkloric Argentinean, Mexican and Cuban songs are presented under the same umbrella to reflect on the lineage and influence of the tango tradition. 

Malena Dayen was born and raised in Buenos Aires. She sang tango since she can remember, and she studied music in Buenos Aires and in Mannes College of Music in New York. She sings opera, oratorio and concert and performed in Carnegie Hall and Merkin Hall in New York, at the Sacred Music Festival in Rome, the Israeli Opera House and with the Teatro Colón Orchestra in Buenos Aires.

David Rosenmeyer was born in Argentina and started studying music in Israel, where he lived as a child. As an orchestral conductor, David worked with orchestras in Italy, Hungary, Israel, Mexico, Brazil, Chile and Argentina and made his debut in Carnegie Hall conducting the Oratorio Society of New York.

Born in Jerusalem and raised in Buenos-Aires and Tel-Aviv, Or Bareket, one of the most in-demand and versatile bassists on the NYC jazz scene. Winner of the 1st prize at the International Society of Bassists' jazz competition in 2011, Or’s diverse heritage is clearly present in his playing.  His approach to improvisation is informed by Mediterranean, South American and North African folklores, all interpreted through his deep knowledge and appreciation of the American Jazz tradition.
