On any Wednesday night in Palermo Hollywood, Buenos Aires, Argentina, music lovers can enjoy a sumptuous dinner and listen to the beautiful voice of Danisa Fagan and the fluid guitar of Dr. Rojo (Pablo Maitia). The setting is the elegant “La Trattoria Mattone” in the Argentine capital, a city inspired by Paris, Spain and Italy.

Their music is an eclectic mix of jazz, tango, Bossa Nova, French and English standards.

Danisa shows complete mastery of Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf songs, while Dr. Rojo’s Django Reinhardt inflected guitar strumming and solos keep the listener in rapt attention.

Not only are they the stars of each Wednesday night in this trendy barrio of Buenos Aires, but also they draw other talented musicians to the stage to play along with Danisa’s vocals and Pablo’s guitar.

Danisa and Pablo have toured extensively throughout northern Argentina as well as Brazil.

Local crowds have met them enthusiastically, and they enhance their own music with influences drawn from the places they have been. Danisa is a serious student of vocal music, who enjoys traditional and folkloric sounds and often includes them in her wide-ranging repertoire. Pablo sings as well, and often uses humor to further engage the audience.

Danisa Fagan and Pablo Maitia have what it takes to make it in the musical world, one that is increasingly difficult to break through, but with their unquestioned talent and perseverance, it is only a matter of time. The great guitarist Jerry Topinka has stated “I love them!”, fellow singers have said that she has “a unique and distinctive voice”, and guitarists have praised Pablo’s playing and look forward to playing with him.
