Tango at Megaron: Concert by the Athens Tango Ensemble

MMA exterior



With its roots tracing back to West Africa and Spain, the tango took shape in the Río de la Plata slums, and with its unique dynamism grew and survived into the 20th and, unpredictably, the 21st century, expressing a sort of ritualistic erotic code which is being renewed through young composers and performers. 
A two-day phantasmagoric dance-music show, with tango and Argentinian songs, culminating in a milonga evening with the participation of the audience, for the first time at the Athens Concert Hall! With the Athens Tango Ensemble quintet on 21 Feb., and La Yumba Team with Jorge Barreto on 22 Feb.
