Eva Argentina has set on a mission to unite cultures – Austrian tradition meets South American spirit in music and expression. She spreads messages of peace, community and unity in her concerts and projects where she is singing with international musicians. Many years abroad in various countries have evoked in her the wish to bring people and cultures together. Together with her friends from Austria, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru and other countries Abrazo a las Culturas has developed to an international project. With more than 80 concerts in Austria, Hungary and South America she succeeds in bringing cultures in a respectful way closer together. Eva ´s music is played on international radio stations. Her project not only crosses boarders but also language barriers. With translations and songs in German, or one of the dialects of her province Styria, English, Spanish, Portuguese but also Quechua and the language of the Mapuche she manages to bring cultures closer together.
In her endeavor to integrate refugees from Afghanistan and Syria she also invites some of them to sing or play music in her concerts. “All humans should be united in peace. Praying is not enough – we must also live it.” Abrazo a las Culturas – Embracing Cultures – Umarmung der Kulturen

What Evas Fans say…
“Eva, thank you so much, that you carry the music of our country to the place of your origin. The musicians stand out during their performance of this beautiful tango “Vuelvo al Sur”. While listening to this interpretation, I am carried away with my memories to the neighborhood of San Telmo in Buenos Aires, where there is this bar “Sur”. That´s the place where our beloved Polaco Goyeneche sings this tango in the film “Sur”. Thanks.”
Claudio Omar Gomez
