LADIES GO TANGO
“Warning: Tango contains highly addictive ingredients, such as pain, pleasure, passion, excitement, connection, freedom, torment and bliss. In seven out of ten cases it takes over a person’s life.”
They say that the voice of Argentina speaks through the sound of tango. However, is not the music, the first tones of which were played by the immigrants, in fact stateless? Is not love its only passport? The love of music, movement, dance, expression, narrative … The love that resides everywhere. And it is the universality of the tango that represents the common thread that ROYA with its own multiculturalism identifies and connects with.
The premiere performance of Ladies goes Tango concert took place during ROYA’s annual event Ladies Night in the City Museum of Ljubljana, in June 2016. The tango was performed in a unique style, with the musicians of the Quatro por Tango ensemble. The excellent arrangements for bandoneon, piano, violin, double bass and saxophone quartet were arranged by the Argentinian composer Fernando Muslera. With his arrangement, the songs of the legendary Astor Piazzolla were revived in a new guise. The performance of the project attracted a lot of attention and gained favor with the audience and the critics:
“... with an abundance of temperament, but also with soft emergence into the lyrical moments of music pieces, the ensemble delivered extremely convincing and charming interpretations that called for enthusiastic applauses, time and time again."
