Susanne and Rafael have already danced three times at this unique place and each time they mastered a new artistic challenge with a breath-taking performance: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqRJCzZ7xNc&index=2&list=PLZ29lLxKFPPQaDswpj4N-Pe84whIO9JYQ.
This time they asked a fabulous Trio from Paris to join a new collaboration: the Argentinian musicians Marisa Mercadé (bandonéon), Diego Aubia (piano) and the French viola player Nicolas Peyrat. They played till 2004 in the Grand Orchestra of grand maestro Juan José Mosalini; in 2008 they start to work together as Trio Nada Mas. Soon they became famous in France. They perform both in concert halls and in Milongas. Their repertoire has a wide range of Tangos of the “Golden Age” to the late Pugliese, Salgan und Troilo to Astor Piazzolla and contemporary forms of Tango.

Olga Krylya, a charismatic DJane from St. Petersburg, is a great enrichment for the recent Russian Tango scene and in Europe still an insider tip. Like a scientist she did a research on the impact of Tango to all continents. So she created the idea of a “Milonga around the world”. Olga collected Tangos from Japan, Turkey, Ukraine, France, Russia and many more countries. She creates musical transitions between different countries and styles and between different époques of Tango. Olga invites us to join this world tour on her wings because in Russia “Krylya” means: wings.
