Tango Festival Trieste - Italy

Tango Festival Trieste - Italy
Alreday the 2020 Edition of the Tango Festival Trieste was postponed to 2021. Unfortunately due to the actual Covid-Situation, also this year cannot happend. The next edition witll be in September 2022.

They write:
Due to the hard period connected with the health emergency COVID-19. We think it is better to be careful and wait for better times to organize this international event that brings people from all over the world every year in the city of Trieste. That way the true essence of tango, social and multicultural dance, can be expressed in the most natural and spontaneous way.
We have been waiting as long as possible hoping that the health situation would allow us to confirm the event, but now we can’t wait any longer. We don’t want to postpone it and overlap with other tango events so we decided to cancel it. The decision was really painful, but we believe it is the most appropriate solution, and we will give our best to make the next edition even more engaging and exciting.
❤️ We thank you for the affection and patience shown, we will embrace you again next year for the VIII edition of the International Trieste Tango Festival 2022, of which we will communicate the dates as soon as possible.
A big tango hug to everyone,

DANÇAS OCULTAS performing in Selters - DE/Portugal

by Diatonic News
DANÇAS OCULTAS
am 28.8.2021 in der Festhalle in Selters/Deutschland

Hinter dem Namen Danças Ocultas verbergen sich vier Akkordeonisten aus Agueda in der Nähe von Porto, die zu den innovativsten und spannendsten Vertretern zeitgenössischer Klänge aus Portugal gehören. Seit einigen Jahren erobern sie die internationalen Bühnen mit einem beim ersten Hinhören unspektakulären Konzept: ruhig, lyrisch, mehr oder minder traditionell, mit nur vier diatonischen Akkordeons.

Besetzung
Artur Fernandes – Diatonisches Akkordeon
Francisco Miguel – Diatonisches Akkordeon
Filipe Cal – Diatonisches Akkordeon
Filipe Ricardo – Diatonisches Akkordeon

Fantafolk
Fantafolk di Vanni Masala e Andrea Pisu:
1/08 "I suoni dell’identità. Concerto di mezzanotte" ad Alghero.
3/08 "Shopping sotto le stelle" ad Oristano.
8/08 "Festival delle launeddas" concerto e diretta tv Videolina con altri artisti, a Villaputzu.

Reduci dai recenti grandi successi, dal videoclip da milioni di "views" e “like” ai vari concerti nei luoghi più originali della loro Isola, saranno in scena il duo Fantafolk, con le launeddas di Andrea Pisu e l’organetto di Vanni Masala, e Valeria Carboni, che darà voce ai canti della Sardegna.Saranno spettacoli sotto le stelle al quale si potrà assistere liberamente, nel pieno rispetto delle norme sanitarie.

Far conoscere ai turisti i suoni e le voci della nostra identità. Ma anche permettere ai giovani di prendere consapevolezza del grande tesoro rappresentato dalle musiche della tradizione della Sardegna.
