Tribute to Piazzolla with Senda Florida Trio
Time & Location
About the Event
The Alliance Française de Melbourne & Boite World Music present: World Music Café à l'Alliance. A combined initiative bringing a series of world music concerts to the intimate performance space of the Alliance Française.
For the first concert of this series, we are delighted to be welcoming the Senda Florida Trio who will be playing a tribute to tango legend Astor Piazzola.
Born in Argentina, Astor Piazzolla is credited with completely revolutionising tango, incorporating elements of jazz and classical music. He briefly lived in Paris in the mid 50s, and it was here that, after a turbulent period of stylistic vacillation, he finally committed himself to tango and embarked on a musical journey that completely changed the course of the genre.
The exceptional trio Senda Florida will pay a tribute to Piazzolla through contemporary arrangements of some of his best-known works and references to the classic tangos from which he departed to create his subversive nuevo tango style.
The Senda Florida Trio are Stephen Cuttriss on bandoneon, Paloma Bica on violin and Juan Veron on guitar and vocals.
