August 28, Jurmala Culture Centre, Concert – “Silencio. Un tango más.”

The overwhelming emotional experience created by Tango Orchestra “Silencio” and dancers from Argentina and the Baltic Sea Region on 28 August 2015 will carry you away and the impressions will remain with you long after the concert.

Apart from piano player Roger Helou, the ensemble consists of Omar Fernandez on vocals, Winifried Holzenkamp on double bass, Amadeo Espina on viola, and Jose-Luis Betancor on bandoneon.

It will be authentic Argentinean music, attractive because of its origins – it is a mixture of Spanish, Criollo (Gaucho/Native from the countryside) and certainly African elements of music.

Although the main highlight of the concert is the music of tango in its multiple shades and colors, some of the pieces will be supplemented by dance performed by the famous Argentinean Maestros Lorena Ermocida & Pancho Martinez Pey, the unmatched Argentinean Maestro Jesus Velazquez with Margita Antonova (Latvia), as well as dancers from our neighboring countries Jessica Štšerbakova from Estonia with her partner Somer Surgit (Turkey) and Maria and Pasi Lauren from Finland.

Concert venue: 35 Jomas iela, Jurmala; Jurmala Culture Centre, Big Hall. (By the way, it is not very big – it only has 350 places, so don’t be late with getting your ticket at Bilesu Serviss sales points or on the internet! Ticket price includes refreshment.)

Tango Sun Festival 2015

The registration for participation in the biggest Argentinian tango festival in Baltics – 8th TANGO SUN FESTIVAL on 25.08-01.09 in Riga and Jurmala, Latvia, is open and ongoing!

Our idea for the workshop program this year is to offer intensive seminar packages for those of you who would like to work hard on your technique or learn combinations and study the music to improve your dance flow. Additionally we offer a few thematic seminars like Milonga and Vals and a solo technique workshop for followers and leaders.

A special novelty this year will be a musicality seminar with the leader of the Orchestra Silencio – Roger Helou, together with dancers Maria and Pasi Lauren from Finland.

We have invited again the fantastic orchestra Silencio to play live music during the Milonga grande and to create a unique concert for you together with the dancers (Tickets you can get here). We are sure this will be among the peaks of the festival.

We are very glad to have a more intensive cooperation with the city of Jurmala and the culture center so that you can enjoy a package of 4 days and nights in this beautiful town at the baltic sea shore. Prior to the event in Jurmala the local tango schools will host 2 milongas in Riga and after the festival as well.
