The Chicago Vibe


Helado Negro - Bringing Latin American Music to TNK

Alicia Maciel | January 2018

Headlining a sold out show night 1 of Tomorrow Never Knows is Helado Negro, bringing ambiance through bilingual lyrics and wavy instrumentals. As a singer-songwriter, Roberto Lange infuses his Ecuadoran-American roots by composing songs in the languages of Spanish and English. Struggling with identity over his lifetime both privately and as an artist, Lange began to work on his fifth and most vulnerable release Private Energy.

Straying away from the norm and creating an original sound, Lange’s sultry vocals layered over captivating electronic pop music can resonate with anyone. Motivated to share his identity through creative expression, one-man band Helado Negro makes audiences of any tongue or skin share a truly powerful experience.

Check out “It’s My Brown Skin” from Helado Negro’s Private Energy (2016). You can find Helado Negro’s links and tour dates down below.
