What the Press is saying about the Tango del Cielo:
“What Anna Maria is doing with the harp and tango is fantastic! And the audience loves it!”
– PABLO ZIEGLER, 2006 Grammy Award winner for Best Tango Album
“The American Harp Society’s big conference was an incredible experience…an opportunity to hear the world’s best harpists… let me mention one enchantingly wonderful group, Anna Maria Mendieta and her ensemble. While the music was fantastic, a complete surprise was when the dancer extended a hand to harpist Anna Maria and she accepted. Wow, the music went on, the dance went on, then he escorted her back to the harp for the finish. I was glad I hadn’t skipped that concert.”
– KATHY CHALIE, Chapter President, American Harp Society
