News Flash*** This week’s event has the great fortune of the addition of a lesson on musicality featuring live music by our trio, and the addition of guest DJ Craig Herrington from Cleveland. This has been made possible thanks to Meredith Klein. Read updated details on these guests, time and cost of the event below.
April 28th Features the Yasmina Rais Trio and Guest DJ Craig Herrington. The trio will team up with Meredith Klein and Andres Amarilla to teach a lesson on musicality. Then the trio will play more live music for your dancing pleasure during the milonga. Guest DJ, Craig Herrington, will play tandas between the sets of live music. The Yasmina Rais Trio is an outstanding instrumental tango trio that emerged in the city of Buenos Aires in early 2018. They are on their North American Tour and this will be their first time performing at VivaTango. Their sound incorporates modern sounds with harmony and tempo changes, and with dynamics of great character. The three instruments play equal roles, thus exploiting the technical and expressive possibilities of each one of the instrumentalists. Guest DJ, Craig Herrington, is a popular DJ at festivals. He is based in Cleveland but travels widely in the Midwest and Northeast for Tango events. We welcome Craig for his first appearance at VivaTango. Lesson starts at 7 PM, Milonga starts at 8:00. Cost $25. All dancers must show proof of full vaccination on first visit. Masks are recommended, but are optional. EVENT LINK
