The music of Tango is known internationally as one of the most celebrated forms of music originating from the country of Argentina. Brought to life in movies, television, concerts, ballrooms, and dance throughout the world.
JazzBuffalo, in association with ArtsBuffalo and the Terrace at Delaware Park as well as through the support of Moshe Shulman and Mark Goldman, is excited to present to the Buffalo community a special concert event.
The event will present authentic Argentinean Tango music featuring international Tango stars, Fabrizio Mocata and Carlos Habiague. Both master pianist Fabrizio Mocata from Italy and Argentinean star vocalist Carlos Habiague, from Argentina, are on a rare tour of the United States and will make a stop in Buffalo. Both will be on a 3-day break from a worldwide Tango program of music and dance playing in major performing arts centers.
They will be accompanied by two of Buffalo’s own international Tango stars, Moshe Shulman and Miranda Shulman. Both are known in our region for their performances right here in Buffalo but are well known on the international stage of Tango performances in such countries as Israel and Germany.
This is a special opportunity for the Buffalo Community to experience authentic Argentine Tango music. An evening of award-winning dinner and wines from the Terrace at Delaware Park to complement the celebrated music genre of Argentine Tango on the Pan Am Room stage and baby grand piano.
