As ‘La Cumparsita,’ the definitive and most iconic tango, reaches its 100th anniversary, the concert will bring alive the eternal energy that makes it one of the most recognisable tangos of all time, while also exploring the diversity of the instrument.

The program of iconic works will include contemporary and traditional tangos, as well as innovative arrangements of pieces by Chopin and Bach, showcasing the diversity of the artform and the instrument. The renowned Uruguayan bandoneònist Hector Ulises Passarella will be accompanied by other prestigious Uruguayan musicians — including H.E. Nelson Yemil Chabén, Ambassador of Uruguay to the UAE on piano. A night exporing the riches of the instrument’s expressive, sombre and powerful sound.
