The Latin strummer returns


Fans will see three different sides to Brazilian singer-songwriter Fernando Aragones (pictured) at his string of resort gigs. 

The Sydney-based muso begins a five-night run at the Queenstown Adventure Film Festival this evening. 

He was asked back after a one-off appearance at last year’s fest. 

As well as belting out solo tracks, Aragones will showcase songs from two other bands he is in – three-piece outfit Dubbly and the Latin-tinged Toca Jorge. 

“It’s a real buzz coming to Queenstown again and this time I’ll be doing a compilation of all the different styles of music I’m involved with,” he says. 

Since last appearing here, Aragones has toured in Europe, the United Kingdom, Brazil and Australia. He also has an album planned for later in the year. 

His Memorial Hall appearances, from tonight till Monday, start at 8pm.
