Tango Port Tallinn 2012

A huge thanks to everybody who participated and helped to organise the II international Tango Port Tallinn 2012 festival! Some photos can be seen here (from various evenings), here (Sat. milonga in the Estonian National Opera; password: "valgesaal") and here (performances of IR and CS in the Estonian National Opera) :)

This time Tango Port Tallinn really represents a PORT for tango people. We invite you to different places near the port: to milongas in the middle of seagrass, dancing IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA on Sunday - in a fairytale under boats and next to a real submarine!

It is the 2nd  international Argentine tango festival in Tallinn, a city that hides thousands of secrets in the romantic medieval old town, at the seaside and in many other unique places in the heart of Tallinn. This year the festival is co-organised together with Tallinn Maritime Days.

A special musicality class to all levels is given by German musicians Frank Schulte (piano) and Christian Gerber (bandoneón).

Live music is played during Friday, Saturday and Sunday concert-milongas. The artists include musicians from Estonia (Kirill Ogorodnikov - guitar, Jekaterina Danilova - accordion/bandoneón, Nele Suisalu - vocals), Quinteto Ángel from Germany (with Christian Gerber on bandoneón who played both in Trio and Sexteto Stazo Mayor at Tango Port Tallinn 2011) and duo Aires de Finlandia Petri Kaivanto (Finland) & Alejandro Polemann (Argentina).
