Tango meet Gypsy music
to Astor Piazzolla, 100 years after birth

Through this program, we want to show the musical interferences between people. The gypsies, being nomadic people, especially the gypsy musicians, transmitted cultural influences from one people to another over long distances.
At the same time, the gypsy musicians brought influences from their own culture but also assimilated elements from the cultures of the peoples where they lived.
On the other hand, tango was also born from an amalgam of different cultures, such as Spanish dances, Italian songs, Africa rhythms, Creole folk traditions, Jewish sentimentality, and the French violin school.
At one point these two cultures met, which caused new currents and interesting musical styles.
