A classical aproach to a selection of the best Argentinian tangos-canciones of the golden period, neither opera nor dance music.

"la star portugaise du chant lyrique a délaissé le répertoire classique pour insuffler un peu de majesté au tango sa captivante voix de velours et de métal et grâce à son lyrisme et sa majesté le tango s'offre un costume classique."
Eliane Azoulay - TELERAMA

Born in Oporto from Spanish mother and Portuguese father, Parisian of adoption, convinced European, Jorge Chaminé is an open-minded baritone .

After of the studying law at the University of Coïmbra, Chaminé chooses definitively the career of singer and becomes a pupil of Lola Rodríguez de Aragón, Hans Hotter, Daniel Ferro and Jean-Pierre Blivet.
