Don’t miss this workshop, led by Carlos “Charly” Arana, a guitarist, producer, and researcher of Latin American rhythms, on the differences and similarities between Brazilian samba and Argentine tango, the emblematic music of Rio de Janeiro and the Rio de la Plata.

Brazilian samba and Argentine tango, which have defined the sociocultural identity of their respective countries, were born and developed in parallel in the same decades of the last century. Brazilian singer Carmen Miranda expressed the maturity of these rhythms in her famous song “O Samba e o Tango.”
