TANGALO WITH FABIAN RODRIGUEZ (BUENOS AIRES) SPECIAL GUESTS THE VICTOR VALDEZ TRIO
The Tango meets at Blue Beat with an exciting collaboration between Argentina and Australia...
Vocals to die for, smoldering violin, a bleeding accordion, passionate piano, a weeping guitar, fancy flute and the grunt of a tango double bass - You will be transported to the underground world of Buenos Aires Tango Salons.
Fabian Rodriguez, a gifted singer from Argentina, grew up with Tango running through his blood. His grandfather and uncles composed for the 'Tipica Orchestra' and his aunt was Aida Denis, one of the most renowned tango singers of the '40's.
With this great knowledge and experience behind him, Fabian has launched his first Album "Alas de Tango", a tribute to the great tango singers and songwriters of all time in a repertoire that explores all the love of Tango in all its forms and manifestations.
In this tour of Australia Fabian will be joined by Tangalo - a vibrant modern Tango quintet based in Sydney. Tangalo has received rave reviews from audiences at their recent shows with Argentine Tango company Belen Tango and Made In Argentina Festival and have been booked by some of the biggest festivals in Australia including The National Folk Festival, Tango in the Spring and B.A.S.H. Combining the emotion of golden-age tango with a contemporary aesthetic, Tangalo's music is exquisite for dancers and listeners alike.
For all those Tango dancers out there - Blue Beat's dance floor will be open for your pleasure.

VICTOR VALDEZ TRIO
Virtuoso Mexican harpist, a walking encyclopedia of Latin music past and present who has redefined the harp as a solo and lead instrument in a multitude of musical contexts. He's played with everyone from Angus & Julia Stone and Los Lobos to Jimmy Barnes, and appeared on folk, world music, rock and blues festival stages Australia-wide.
Steeped in the folkloric traditions of his native Mexico, he not only played and taught music with the very best, but also Mexican and Latin dance - he was national Folkloric Dance Champion for three years in a row and after re-locating to Australia he taught Latin dance at the Sydney Dance Company for four years.
As a solo harpist Victor has performed in 25 countries worldwide. For 10 years he was a member of Tlen Huicani, the best known and multi-award-winning Mexican folk group which toured the world, playing 20 performances at Sydney Opera House.
He has appeared at Bluesfest (where he was named Director's Choice), Bellingen Global Carnival, National Folk Festival Canberra, Woodford Folk Festival, Womadelaide, Adelaide Cabaret Festival and on many other major stages. On other big stages he has toured with Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Los Lobos (tour support and special guest), Angus & Julia Stone (special guest), and Maya Jupiter and Aloe Blacc (special guest) to name just a few.
Victor will be joined tonight by two other masters of all things Latino, the great pairing of Dauno Martinez and Antonio Marquez, both of whom are virtuoso musicians in their own right.
