Jimena Fama and Tango Conspiracy Heat Up The Hamptons
If you look at the list of accomplishments of Jimena Fama you might be expect someone far older than this young Argentinean beauty who has taken the musical world by storm with Tango Conspiracy. “Normally you meet someone who really knows tango or really knows electronic music,” notes Jimena, “It’s rare to find someone who understands both.” She explains that traditional tango can be intimidating and she is finding a way with her compositions to translate tango to the next generation. “This way it’s easy for people to feel the music and get into it,” she says. Having played piano, guitar, bass and drums, Jimena knows exactly what she wants from her bands to create her original sound.

Jimena and her bands have performed for the Polo Beach Cup in Miami, the Metropolitan Gala for Robert De Niro, Samuel L Jackson, Spike Lee, Larry Gagosian at Art Basel, the Guggenheim Museum, and the New World Symphony. They will be headlining tonight the New York Tango Festival.
The last four albums Jimena did for a branded collection named “Electro Dub Tango” and she is currently working on her Tango Conspiracy album. As a matter of fact there is a Hamptons Mix of one of her tracks Mundo Bizarro that will be the first cut.
The Hamptons have served as an inspiration for Jimena recently. “Compared to the craziness of New York City, the Hamptons are so laid back and simple. Even though it has the high economic status, it has a humble vibe. Very chill.” A favorite Hamptons hot spot for Jimena is La Maison Blanche on Shelter Island where she has a real knack for Petanque.
You may be familiar with Jimena’s songs which have been featured in Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, compilations in Europe (France Nikki Beach, Portugal, Germany, London) and on the Starbucks exclusive album with the best 12 pieces of Tango, including her songs with the best Tango composers of the World (Piazzolla, Yo Yo Ma, etc.)
