August 22 – Joaquin Gustav’s Tribute to Astor Piazzola

1–4pm slt Trib­ute Island

Tonight the tal­ent­ed Argen­tin­ian gui­tarist, Joaquin Gust­va, will pay trib­ute to one of the most impor­tant tan­go com­posers of the late 20th cen­tu­ry, Astor Pia­zol­la.

Mr Piaz­zol­la is pop­u­lar­ly seen as rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing the genre by fus­ing the tra­di­tion­al tan­go with ele­ments from jazz and clas­si­cal music to cre­ate the ‘nue­vo tan­go’ style. Then in 1955, back in Argenti­na, he formed the Octe­to Buenos Aires and the nue­vo tan­go devel­oped into an estab­lished genre. His sound is led­ge­nary.

Much acclaimed SL artist, Joaquin Gus­tav, is a com­pos­er, direc­tor, teacher and artist rich in smooth Jazz sound, tem­pered with clas­si­cal rock, and steeped in those south amer­i­can sounds of Tan­go, Milon­ga, and Can­dombe. This will be an event not to be missed.

Fol­low­ing the con­cert, Soliel Snook will present two hours of Tan­go for your lis­ten­ing and danc­ing plea­sure. Join us for Hot Tan­go on a Hot Sum­mer Night or tune into
