The main reason I went to Houston’s iFest this year was to hear Tango music from the amazing Hector del Curto. Hector has been recognized as one of the best Bandoneón players but he’s also formed many orchestras, quintets and such, all featuring Argentinian Tango music. Additionally, Hector directed the Broadway show Eternal Tango. Hector is from Buenos Aires, Argentina but now lives in New York City.
To my surprise, three couples from that show danced on stage during his performance at the iFest. After watching the opening performance without blinking, for fear of missing anything, I flicked my camera to VIDEO and shot the entire next song.
The music, the atmosphere, the romance, the sensual drama…..This is why I love Tango!
Here is Hector del Curto with Eternal Tango dancers Mauro Caiazza and Daniela Kizyma.
