Orquesta Tipica “La Juan D’Arienzo” from Buenos Aires – LIVE IN PHILLY!
March 6 @ 6:30 pm - March 7 @ 6:30 pm$15 – $50
One of the most popular, most danceable, and highest-level tango orchestras in the world, Orquesta Tipica La Juan D’Arienzo from Buenos Aires has been steadily acquiring devotees since its founding in 2012. The orchestra enjoys a direct link to the best of tango history: the lead bandoneon and orchestra leader is Facundo Lazzari, whose grandfather was Carlos Lazzari. Carlos was the first bandoneónist and arranger for the original Juan D’Arienzo Orchestra from 1950 until 1976, when D’Arienzo passed away, and then the leader of Los Solistas de D’Arienzo.
After less than a year in existence, La Juan D’Arienzo was already playing as part of the Buenos Aires Tango Festival and touring throughout Argentina. Since 2014, the band has completed extensive tours in Europe. In 2015, they played 35 shows in Asia, as well as performing in 27 cities in Europe. Each year, the orchestra’s profile rises, but they have not yet performed in the United States.
We are HONORED and THRILLED to present La Juan D’Arienzo in Philly for one night only on Wednesday, March 6 as part of their first U.S./Canada tour. This is an incredible opportunity to hear (and dance to!) one of the greatest tango orchestras in the world. In addition to a live music milonga, they will teach a tango music workshop and give an interview about the band and their music. Feel free to submit questions to be asked during the interview!
