Dutch International Tangoweek

The Story Behind The Music

Would you like to know what to look out for during the various concerts? Or where the Argentine Tango comes from? These and many more questions will be answered during the festival in this interactive and musical presentation. The presentation will give you the context that is nice to enjoy the concerts in more detail.

Leo Vervelde, department leader Argentine Tango at the Rotterdam Conservatory Codarts and teacher Wim Warman will take you on a journey through the rich history of this musical movement. You will hear anecdotes and stories you did not know and of course we will show you a lot. The stories connect to artists who are programmed during the weekend and help you to discover new things in the music. Whether you enjoy it as a dancer or listener

During the presentation he will work together with Wim Warman, head teacher piano at the same department. Wim is a regular guest in our tango clubs and he can also be seen and heard during the festival.
