Resonancias: Tango and more
Alliance Francaise auditorium (Av. Córdoba 946, 4322-0068). 8.30pm. Tickets $40 at the venue on the show’s day.
If you were wondering where to find, in one single spot, a festival highlighting the changes of a music like tango, which seems to be deeply rooted in tradition, here’s the Alliance Francaise’s season Resonancias.
Now in its fifth edition, Resonancias pushes tango boundaries to the limits, meaning fusion with unlikely genres, performances with a wide assortment of musicians willing to experiment. Closing the festival will be a “French evening” with a ladies’ orchestra and Ofidio Dellasoppa, a singer-songwriter who belts out tangos with outrageous lyrics which he sings clad in magnificently trashy attire.
Tonight is the turn of Alejandro del Prado and next Friday Ofideio Dellasoppa and La Impertinente Señorita Orquesta.
