International Tango Festival in Cadiz

This entry is about:, , , , - Note: This entry is a machine translation

it has been Cádiz port of departure of many of those who emigrated to Argentina. In fitting tribute, the city organized the first edition of the Tango Festival. :

 International Festival of Tango and Friends of Cadiz - Hotel Monte Puertatierra From 24 to June 28, 2015 , bandoneon, piano, violin and bass resonate in the streets of Cadiz .

The first International Tango Festival and Friends in Cadiz , organized in collaboration between the City of Cadiz and Consulate of Argentina , brings musicians, poets and dancers from overseas. With a share of about 300 artists , milonga and tango will be represented in all its essence.

Characteristic of Rio de la Plata , also extended to Uruguay , tango, dance, music and lyrics, has become a popular event with its own name, a genre that continues to evolve and be enriched.

Although the genre “tango” exists in the Andalusian flamenco, the origin and evolution of the Argentine genre is quite different. Different studies cite an ethnic origin with influences from other music as milongas, pirigundines and canguelas that shaped the second half of the nineteenth century to the present tango.

Tango music is very personal, of binary or ternary and a wide variety of instrumental ensembles, often with bandoneon in the center.

The letter also has its own personality, sometimes with texts written in a local slang called slang found in letters like milonga Edmundo Rivera engaged in their “My Buenos Aires”:

I will continue scruchando in your slang
without Bishop, giraffe, or flag.
And my voice will be the bard artillery
you sing more canera rhyme.

These letters are usually usually sad love stories. As a poet said portuense “ tango is a sad thought that is danced “.

Also, the best known, is the most personal tango dance. Sensual and deep emotional relationship between the dancers in an embrace continuous.

The scenarios chosen for this first edition of the International Tango Festival, are the Cultural Center for the Performing Arts the Castillo de Santa Catalina and outdoors, the Playa de La Caleta and places the City and Mina .
