TANGO STORY, a project of the European Capital of Culture Maribor 2012, has toured major venues in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the USA. At the Drama Acoustics event bursting with virtuosity and passion, the internationally acclaimed musicians will take you from the bars and brothels of the old tango viejo to tango nuevo, classic modern tango. They will present a line-up of famous compositions by Ástor Piazzolla and traditional hits by Carlos Gardel and other great masters of the Argentine tango.
Tango Story is presented by Andreja Podlogar and Blaž Bertoncelj, the world champions in the Argentine tango in 1998. In 2003 they performed to great public and critical acclaim at the international Argentine Tango festival in Buenos Aires. They have toured successfully in the USA, China, Hong Kong, Turkey, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Poland, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. Their show will feature singer Irena Yebuah Tiran, soloist and member of several chamber ensembles in Slovenia and internationally. Peter Srpčič will enrich the passionate virtuoso evening by reciting poetry.
