Eleanor & Dario
Our Music Is Our Song
Charismatic husband and wife duo Eleanor Dubinsky and Dario Acosta Teich transport audiences to Latin America and around the world with their fresh interpretations of Latin, Jazz, French, Jewish and original songs.
Eleanor is a USA-born vocalist and multi-instrumentalist whose musical roots are in classical cello. Dario, a virtuoso guitarist, is from Tucumán, Argentina, a South American center of folk music and indigenous culture. Together, the artists inspire with elegant performances transcending genre and geography. Audiences are invited to clap, dance and sing along – all in celebration of the healing power of music.
“Eleanor and Dario were one of the absolute hit highlights and discoveries of our JAS June gathering.”
– Jim Horowitz, Director, Jazz Aspen Snowmass
“Their music is food for the soul, whether you are 3 years old or 103. Listening to them is like being in a gentle summer rain. And if you feel like you need to “shake your body”, they can get you up and moving! Eleanor and Dario just bring pure JOY!” – Stephen P. Zwolak, University City Children’s Center
“Live at WNMU Fine Arts Theater”
Eleanor and Dario lead school assemblies, classroom workshops and masterclasses for students ages K through university.
They teach in Spanish, French, Portuguese and Hebrew in addition to English and are passionate about making the arts accessible and inclusive to artists and non-artists of all ages.
Over the past three years the duo has served as cultural ambassadors via the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs Arts Envoy program and African Regional Services in Mauritania, Guatemala, Argentina and Honduras.
“Eleanor and Dario together create powerful magic. The nature of the music and the international flavor would fit in any venue, large or small and excite audiences, young and old. The only question we had at the end of the show was ‘When can we get them back?'”
