Music: Trio Sentimento
Tatiana Manolidou and Thanasis Saltas present Tango Stories with the Trio Sentimento.
The sweet melancholy of Tango invites us from excitement to sorrow, and from tears to kissing, to a journey into the music of the world from Argentina to Crete.
Tango stories, small love stories of couples in cities with their own musical history. In Buenos Aires our first kiss, the new daze in Crete. In Ibiza, a Greek smile haunts us and in Tunisia, somewhere in the country of Lotus, drunk with the perfumes of Lethe, we forget our name. Return from the South to the North and out of sorrow to regret.
The moon sing to us in Moscow nights. We are in love with a Waltz in Vienna to dance in lightning and thunder. In our soul Desert, two hirsty teenagers are looking for immortal water. In Nazareth two crucified lovers seek salvation, and the winged God, the lightning love touches our hearts …
