When you hear the word tango, the first image that pops in mind is probably a passionate duo dance like that famous scene in Scent of a Woman. Nevertheless, the Argentina composer Astor Piazzolla sought to shatter that stereotype by setting the dance aside and casting the spotlight on the beautiful music itself. His revolutionary style—Tango Nuevo—combines the rigorous structure of classical music and avant garde chorus of jazz. When Piazzolla’s composition meets OUR TANGO, a group of talented oriental performers, every concert they held since 2011 has stimulated exciting sparks. This world-class orchestra not only explores the interdisciplinary connections between tango and other fields of art, but also weaves their traditional Chinese cultural background into their performance of Argentina music. The transnational and cross-cultural collaboration has rocked the world of audiences around the globe, and is sure to rock yours as well.
