A joyous and uplifting occasion you won't forget!

History of Argentinian culture is only complete with its wonderfully diverse styles of music and dance. The rich contributions of indigenous music styles, combined with African beats, with Spanish and other European traditions and of course Tango, have created something very special, during the course of  last 300 years.

This makes for an infectious and exciting melting pot of sounds, that inspire its audience to engage and participate. After all, Argentinians are known for their sense of fun and are a people who really know how to party!
