Win Tickets to See Cecilia Zabala and Philippe Baden Powell Jan. 26 in NYC
If you’re a New Yorker who loves South America, singer-songwriters and jazz, are you ever in for a treat. On Thurs., Jan. 26, Philippe Baden Powell--son of famed Brazilian guitarist and composer Baden Powell--and the Argentine singer-songwriter Cecilia Zabala are playing together at Americas Society, and we want you to be there. To enter to win a pair of tickets, send an email to and put “Fronteras Giveaway” in the subject line. Philippe Baden Powell only half followed in his father’s footsteps--he’s a virtuosic musician too, but opted for the piano instead of the guitar. No worries, though. On their 2015 collaborative album Fronteras, Cecilia Zabala proves she is more than capable of filling in on the six-string, and she has a lovely voice to boot. The album, which came out in 2015, is plaintive but stylistically varied. This is the duo’s New York debut; don’t miss it!
