Tango is an art that dates back to the end of 19th century in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and Montevideo, Argentina, and is a UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The concert aims to both profile and popularizes Tango among Malaysians.
Jeannie Low, producer of ‘Scent of Tango’ and co-founder of Fame Studio said, ‘The art of Tango is to embrace the freedom of expression and channel the positive energy to the partner, which is why the dance is deemed as one of the most unique dances in the world.’
The two-pronged event – a concert show with a live performance from renowned international artistes –will be featuring the world’s top performers namely Sebastian Acosta and Laura D’Anna, the champions of Mundial World Tango 2014, and Roberto Castillo and Julieta Biscione, Argentine Professional Stage Tango Dancers.
Additionally, world-renowned orchestra, Hyperion Ensemble, will perform popular music from the Tango ‘Old Guard’ such as D’arienzo, Pugliese, Canaro, among others. It will also play famous contemporary music by composer such as Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla is reputed to be the one who fused classical and jazz music into stage Tango that gave birth to Tango Nuevo (New Tango).
The event is fully supported by the Embassy of Argentina in Malaysia. It aims to promote Argentine culture and strengthen the government-to-government relations under Cultural Exchange Initiative.
‘We are expecting audience mainly to come from Malaysia but surely Tango enthusiasts around the region will not want to miss out on this event. More so, we want Malaysians who are interested in art and culture but are yet familiar with Tango, to take this opportunity to get to know this art form. Tango can be enjoyable by all, be it as a spectator, a music listener, or a participant in its social dances and gathering. We welcome everyone!’ Jeannie enthused.
