Astor Piazzolla is known as the inventor of modern tango. But is this true? Was Piazzolla the only figure of this movement, or were there others? Sonico celebrates the repertoire of the unjustly forgotten Argentinian composer Eduardo Rovira. Rovira is thought of as the “other Piazzolla” because of his fundamental role in the creation of the tango nuevo during the Buenos Aires avant-garde in the early 50’s.
In 2017/2018, Sonico will open Bozar’s season with “United Music of Brussels”, perform on Liégeois television during the festival “Jazz à Verviers,” participate in the “Een Beetje Belg” exhibition at the Red Starline Museum in Antwerp, and will perform as part of the European tour of Fernando Otero (winner of 3 Grammy awards).
