TANGO MEETS JAZZ

BABEL COLLAGE
Carlos Corona - guitar
Giovanna Piazza - vocals
Trigo Santana - bass

Was haben Tango und Jazz gemeinsam? Ganz allgemein betrachtet sind sie in zwei ehemaligen Kolonien Amerikas Ende des 19. und Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts entstanden und vermischen Einflüsse der europäischen Polkas und Walzer, Operetten und klassische Musik mit komplexen perkussiven Elementen der afrikanischen Tradition. Beide Richtungen sind der Unterhaltungsmusik zuzuordnen und auch tanzbar. Während in Buenos Aires in der Hafengegend Melancholie und Leidenschaft im Tango zelebriert wurde, tanzten die New Yorker den fröhlichen Lindy Hop zum Swing. In der Reihe "Tango meets Jazz" spielen vier Bands, die sich dem Tango verschrieben haben, sich jedoch auch am Jazz orientieren, eine tanzbare Symbiose zwischen Tango und Jazz mit vielen Improvisationen: Augustín Strizzi Trio mit Noches de Buenos Aires (19.11.), die Band Babel Collage mit ihrem Tangoprogramm (10.12.), Malewache mit einem jazzigen Tango Nuevo Konzert (17.12.) und Pablo Woiz mit seinen Milonga Roots (am 21.1.2022).
