The instigators of this project, Pepe Raphael and Megan Yvonne (Kitty) came together through a mutual love of tango music. Both vocalists, they have been harmonizing together for the past 5 years.
Originally from Madrid, Spain, Raphael has developed a prolific career entertaining in Portland and beyond with groups such as Pepe & the Bottle Blondes, Three Leg Torso, Seda, Pink Martini, and The Oregon Symphony.
Yvonne began her tango music career in Portland with The Alex Krebs Tango Sextet and has since studied with some of the most influential tango musicians of our time in Buenos Aires. She currently leads her own Latin Jazz quintet, Pérola.
