I place Juan José Mosalini among the great conductors of our time, alongside the excellent musicians he himself trained in this language; he has the gift of being able to evoke a particular expression, the fruit of the affirmation of a personal style that unites all the orchestra's instruments in a single entity, the orchestra itself.
Somewhere between the "Orquestra tipica" of the Argentinean dances and the milongas, these balls of experienced amateurs where tango is learned, played, danced and experienced, the "Alma de Tango" program plunges us into the Buenos Aires of yesteryear, without turning our backs on modern tango. Created and directed by the great Argentinean bandoneonist Juan José Mosalini, this group brings together the most renowned artists in this repertoire, with Juan José Mosalini on the bandoneon, of course, but also Sebastien Couranjou on the violin, Diego Aubia on the piano, Leonardo Terrugi on the double bass, as well as the sublime Sandra Rumolino on voice and the great Jorge Rodriguez with his partner in the dance Maria Filali.
Juan José Mosalini, an undisputed reference in tango, who has played with Sálgan, Piazzolla, Caratini and Beytelmann, is inspired as much by the avant-garde as by the essence of puro tango. We find the rigour, sensuality, controlled energy, the intellectual and wild character of the genre, this incomparable beauty that we believe is reserved for the elite, when it is defined - and lived - as resolutely popular. The music imposes its rhythm on the dance and vice versa. Sandra Rumolino's sensual voice reveals all the intimacy of tango and traces an imaginary path to Buenos Aires.
