Tango! It’s sultry, it’s seductive and it’s coming to SE19! Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla reinvented the genre of his homeland into ‘tango neuvo’, and in his centenary year, London Mozart Players and tango dancers Leroy Tango Cat and Emma Lucia Reyes, bring Piazzolla’s Latin infused rhythms and melodies to their ‘Tango Café’ at St John’s, Upper Norwood – for one night only!
Dim the lights, pour the wine, sit back and relax in the intimate atmosphere of our very own cabaret style ‘milonga’. The heat and passion of Buenos Aires will be channelled through the spinetingling sensual sound of this tense, passionate music, which cleverly combines electrifying jazz improvisation with intimate chamber music. Highly respected professional tango dancers Leroy Tango Cat and Emma Lucia Reyes will bring this slinky, sensuous music to life, demonstrating the passion of the dance with elegance and expertise in a showcase of authentic tango moves.
Tango classics such as Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, Libertango and Oblivion are on the menu, with other tango inspired works by composers such as Rodrigo and Villoldo, and a special performance of Sting’s El Tango de Roxanne from the iconic film Moulin Rouge.
Join the London Mozart Players at SE19’s cosy and atmospheric pop up Tango Café for a night of hot and cool music that will have you reaching for your dance shoes, and a dancing partner!
