We are proud to announce the participation of Victor Hugo Vilena and Lautaro Tissera. Victor Hugo Vilena, bandoneon virtuoso trained in Argentina, is considered one of the best bandoneonists of his generation and Lautaro Tissera is one of the most prominent virtuosos guitarists in the contemporary Tango and Music Argentinian.
We are inviting you for our 3 days’ festival to watch, listen and dance!
In between the performances, the dancing floor is going to be open to the public for social tango dancing, so everyone will be able to feel the argentine Tango atmosphere.
Those who say that you can’t dance the Tango if you are not argentine, are mistaken. Tango was immigrant music, so it does not have a nationality, its only passport is feeling.
Tango is a lesson of adaptation, the expression of our intuitive understanding of the present moment, the music, our partner and the couples around.
