“Tango Night with Hora Once Live.” Hora Once is a project of collaborative efforts that began when local Austin harp/guitarist Adam Carney and accordionist Mike Maddux teamed up with vocalist Ana Maria Barajas of Colombia. The group creates music with influences of Tango, Brazilian Choro, and Andean folk music. Barajas is a multilingual, classically trained vocalist; Carney performs on his 7-string guitar and his custom made 14-string harp guitar; and Maddux performs on his accordion and custom-made bandoneon. Hora Once composes original pieces with haunting melodies and moving rhythms with story-telling lyrics of heartfelt poetry. adamcarneymusic.com/hora-once.
