Simply Music Accordion’s Featured Artist – Tara Linda

“Equipped with a sultry voice, accordion, and baritone ukulele, chanteuse Tara Linda plays original jazzy blues, Latin torch, and American roots. A Hohner and Lanakai endorsed Artist, she writes new tangos, waltzes, and boleros, and skirts global genres to blend them into a style uniquely hers. Influenced by the early torch singers of American and Latin American cultures, Tara writes music grounded in the Texas traditions she grew up with; jazz, blues, rock, and Tex-Mex. She has a world music heritage (Indian) and sings in Spanish and English. Tara Linda’s performances are described as ‘mesmerizing’ (TimeOut Oakland Tribune/San Jose Mercury News) and her vocals ‘rich and sultry.'”
