It’s been a while since there was a real big tango festival in Antwerp, but next month there will be a special one: “Tribute to Osvaldo Zotto – Tango Antwerp Festival 2010“.
As you can see from the name, the festival has been dedicated to the recently deceased and much loved Osvaldo Zotto, who was supposed to perform at the festival. Instead, the festival opens with a solo from Gisele Avanzi, his last dance partner, and will also feature maestros like Roberto Herrera, Alejandra Mantiñan, Aoniken Quiroga, Frank Obregón, Jenny Gil, Anibal Lautaro, Valeria Maside, Mariano & Cosima Dias Campos, Lautaro Cancela and Lucila Segura. Music from the well-known orchestras Ensemble Hyperion, Tango 02, Mabel Gonzalez & Trio Herman Ruis and the DJs Felix Picerna, Francesco El Actor (Ar), Nettie & El Karangatang (NL).
Put it in your agendas: Friday May 21st until Monday May 24th, it’s festival time in Antwerp!
