Enjoy a night of Latin American musical virtuosity, passion and dance. A new ensemble of professional musicians led by virtuoso accordionist Karen Street featuring the brilliant, emotionally charged compositions of Argentinian composer Saúl Cosentino alongside music by his mentor Astor Piazzolla and Karen’s own creative and nuanced compositions. Featuring Karen Street on Accordion, Jonathon Taylor on piano, Andy Tweed on saxophones, Dave Manington on bass and Rob Millett on percussion.
Tango is a dance and music style born in the slums of Buenos Argentina in the 1880’s. From its beginnings as a highly improvised dance form it became an international dance craze at the start of the 20th Century. The music also evolved along many different paths. Carismático’s focus is is Tango Nuevo, a style created by Astor Piazzolla who wished to compose for the concert platform rather than the dance hall.
