Benefit-concert for bandoneon in Jujuy

In the past year Carel and Thirza started a cooperation with ‘Foundation Chicos por el Tango’ in Engelen for the preservation of the bandoneon in Argentina. Too many instruments disappear from Argentina, because tourists take them as souvenirs. Carel and Thirza together with local people are trying to get as many instruments as possible back to Argentina. Because of this  deprived young people can learn a profession. Also will be taken care of maintenance and reparation of these instruments. And so we can keep enjoying the Tango WITH the bandoneon and help creating a better future for these youngsters. At this moment already €20.000 has been collected!

Some time ago one could enjoy the documentary ‘El Sonido del Bandoneon’. In this documentary the project is explained even better than we possibly can describe on this page.
