Tatiana Crespo

More from this show

Take in the charismatic and quirky Spanish melodies of Tatiana Crespo, a Phoenix-based singer-songwriter and band member of Las Chollas Peligrosas.

Tatiana came to our downtown Phoenix studio without her guitar and instead brought out her accordion to perform two original tracks filled with personality and swagger, “Tortero” and “Tóxico.”

Tatiana said she first saw the accordion in a local music shop in Traverse City, Michigan, where she used to live, and convinced herself she had to buy it and learn to play. After receiving her payment for her first performance, she went right to the shop and bought it.

After living in Michigan for some time, Crespo started to grow curious about the melting pot of different cultures in Phoenix. Being Hispanic and bilingual herself, she decided to move out west.

“I came out here and I was so amazed and so excited about the scene. It really is a beautiful thing and there is so much Latin music. We really are an amazing community of Hispanic players and it’s an honor to be part of that,” Crespo said.
