Ana Rossi and Federico Diaz

Ana Rossi and Federico Diaz met a few years ago in New York through a dear friend of the music. On a night of guitar playing they realized that they not only shared songs, but also a similar way of making music. This time at Notsolatin, they will cook again the essence of that beautiful encounter using as main ingredients a cluster of Argentine folkloric melodies and a handful of songs from Ana's latest album. This is going to be another magical night of music you don’t want to miss!
