Cristobal Repetto

About artist

Cristóbal Repetto is the owner of a voice that, removed from commonplace, goes beyond age and genre. A synthesis between the creole and the urban, he recovers songs that seemed destined to remain forgotten or in the memory of a few. He has built a repertoire of tangos and creole songs, rescuing the timeless value of the genre.
His debut album - recorded in real time at the historical Ion Studios in Buenos Aires- was produced by Gustavo Santaolalla (twice in a row Oscar Academy Award winner for best original music for "Brokeback Mountain" and "Babel"). This album was released in 2004 by the Surco/Seminal label and in Europe by the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon German label.
In Argentina, it was nominated for “Best Male Tango Artist” at the Carlos Gardel Awards.
Bringing together  tango and rural music, he has toured France, Germany, Belgium, The Nederlands, Spain, Portugal, Slovenia, Hungary, Austria, United Kingdom, Sweden and the USA. He sang at New York’s Lincoln Center and opened for Portuguese singer Cristina Branco in Paris, at the Olympia theatre; for Pink Martini and Israel’s Yasmin Levy at the Royal Festival Hall and at the mythical Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London.
He performed at different World Music festivals such as WOMAD (Madrid and Canary Islands), WOMEX, La Mar de Musicas, Pirineos Sur, En la Línea and Sons em Tránsito, sharing the stage with  Salif Feita, Enrique Morente, Totó La Momposina, Amadou and Mariam, Eddie Palmieri, Hill Cobham, Eliades Ochoa and Cheikha Rimitti among other figures of international music.
As a tango singer, Cristobal Repetto has always characterized himself by his openness and appoach to different musics and diverse artists. In Argentina he has shared stage and recording sessions with Luis Eduardo Aute, Carlos Carabajal, Orozco Barrientos duet, Lalo de los Santos, Ernesto Snajer, Kevin Johansen, Lucio Arce and Daniel Melingo, among other artists.
He took part in a couple of projects produced by Santaolalla: Bajo Fondo Tango Club, for which he recorded with Adriana Varela, and “Café de los Maestros”, in which he was part of a generational summit, singing a duet with maestro Juan Carlos Godoy.
