Tango Benefit

Tango Benefit

El Taller Latino Americano, or The Latin American Workshop is a non-profit 501(c)3 cultural arts center on Manhattan’s Upper West Side – a space alive with color, sound, movement, and creativity – music, art and language converge to educate and entertain and they are sponsoring an event called, “Last Tango on Broadway”

* Surprise Tango Performance at 11:00 pm
* Live World Premier of “Caminito” in new English Translation
* Beginner Tango Class from 8:00-9:00 pm

Skyrocketing rent may force the celebrated non-profit cultural center, El Taller, to say adiós to its Broadway gallery and performance space. But if it happens, we intend to go out singing and dancing – with a spectacular “Building Benefit” Milonga that will make you think you’ve just disembarked from an Aerolineas Argentinas flight to Buenos Aires (without an 11-hour plane ride).

Internationally famous singer-composer Bernardo Palombo, the Argentinian-born founder and director of El Taller for 30 years, will join his Porteño compadres in seductive tangos, delirious valses, and saucy milongas that many New Yorkers have never even heard before, let alone danced to. In the spell of these world-class international virtuosi (not usually heard on the NY Tango “scene”), you will glide, you will twirl, you will fly!

Live Music by: The fabulous Taller Cuatro Tango Club. Guillermo Vaisman, keyboards; Ruben Isola, guitars; Ken Rizzo, bass; Guillermo Cardenas percussion. Live Vocals by: famed international singer actress Adelaide Mestre, who will perform the ‘World Premier’ of Caminito – one of the most beloved of all Argentine tangos – in a moving new immortal 1920s lyrics by poet Coby Lubliner

To Drink: Delicious Malbec, Syrah and Aromatic Argentine coffee will be served, along with native Yerba Mate tea.

To Eat: Splendid quesos and chorizos from Argentina, France and Italy, on crusty sourdough baguettes from the fabled Silver Moon Bakery (which The New Yorker calls “more Left Bank than Upper Broadway”).

Entrance $25.
