Argentinian Tango wows attendees at Katara

The Cultural Village Foundation-Katara in collaboration with the Embassy of Argentina in Doha has organized a tango concert by the widely popular performers Leandro Rouco and Rocio Perez at Katara’s Drama theatre on Monday.

The event was graced by the presence of Ambassador of Argentina to Qatar HE. Rossana Cecilia Surballe and heads of diplomatic missions in Doha.

The Argentinian envoy to Doha has exuded thanks to the Cultural Village for enforcing the mutual cooperation and intruding its visitors to the Argentinian music that reflects the Argentinian culture and heritage.  

During their performance, native Argentinians, Rouco and Perez, bestowed upon the concertgoers an abundant sense of awe. Their collaborative performance showcased nothing short of a trip to Buenos Aires, where the love of tango is everywhere. After having spent seven years performing together all of South America, the artists have come to share their beautiful piece of complex rhythms spanning from all over Argentina.

Argentine Tango is a musical genre of simple quadruple metre and binary musical form, and the social dance that accompanies it. Its lyrics and music are marked by nostalgia, expressed through melodic instruments including the bandoneon. Originating at the ending of the 19th century in the suburbs of Buenos Aires,[, and Montevideo, Uruguay, it quickly grew in popularity and spread internationally. Among its leading figures are the singer and songwriter Carlos Gardel and composers/performers Francisco Canaro, Juan D'Arienzo,Carlos Di Sarli, Osvaldo Pugliese, and Ástor Piazzolla.
