Venezuelan artist, Migguel Anggelo will soon be embarking on his first international tour, sponsored by the U.S. State Department. A dynamic performer known for his electric stage presence, Anggelo delivers unique musical works that shine light on the vibrancy and energy found in Latin culture, while standing up for equality for all. Full of charisma and wonder, Anggelo’s performances tell a communal story. His voice style ranges from opera to rock, by way of heart-thumping originals and reworked pop and folk classics from all of the Americas.
Just in time to round-off Immigrant Heritage Month, Anggelo’s upcoming Russian tour exposes Latin culture to many new fans. Known for his poignant lyrics that address immigration, tyranny, human rights, and his belief that we all have a common dream for a better future, Anggelo challenges the stigma attached to the word immigrant, instead encouraging his audiences to celebrate the blending of different cultures and finding acceptance amongst our differences.
Anggelo studied voice at the Conservatory of Music in Cologne, Germany, wrote music throughout all of his journeys as an immigrant in several countries, and released two albums, the most recent being, La Casa Azul (co‐written and produced by musical director, Mau Quiros and mixed by Grammy Award‐winner Felipe Tichauer). The album spent many months in the Top 20 of the CMJ New World music chart and was selected as a recommended favorite in People En Español. He is currently working on his third album and new show called “English with Accent”.
Anggelo began as a child star and has since performed on many of the world’s greatest stages in Venezuela, Mexico City, Colombia, Argentina, and Germany as well as sold out performances at BAMcafé in Brooklyn; DIA in Detroit; and the New World Center in Miami. These days you can often find him as at his second home of Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in Manhattan. Together with his band “The Immigrants,” they bring to life some of the most notable music figures in Latin culture, with songs such as the Mexican lullaby “Cucurrucucu Paloma,” Celia Cruz’s classic “Oye Como Va,” Gloria Estefan’s “Congo,” and Los Ponchos’ “Sin Ti.”
Migguel Anggelo’s unique artistry builds relationships between Latino and non-Latino audiences around the world. Through both his multi-faceted talent and love for creating art, Anggelo is on the road to becoming an icon in Latin music.
