Carel Kraayenhof and the musicians of Sexteto Canyengue will be giving a very special workshop for musicians at this year’s edition of the festival.
The workshop will address the interpretation of tango, milonga, and vals criollo from their repertoire, looking into specific styles, rhythmical patterns, form of arrangement of Pugliese, Troilo, etc, depending on the level and interest of the participants.
They would preferably work with the instruments of the regular orquesta típica, such as violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano and bandoneón, but other instruments are also welcome.
At the end of the workshop there will be an opportunity to play the pieces studied.
Advanced bookings are required for this workshop as music parts need to be sent beforehand.
Carel Kraayenhof founded the Argentine Tango Education at the World Music Department of the Rotterdam Conservatory in 1993, together with Leo Vervelde, with its first artistic leader Osvaldo Pugliese. He has also been supporting the music school of Avellaneda (Buenos Aires), which teaches tango, folklore and jazz.
