CAIRO – 14 October 2017: The Argentinean music trio Rodolfo Mederos will perform at Cairo Opera House on October 17.
The trio will perform a number of Argentinean folklore and waltz tango music compositions to add an enjoyable and emotional variety to Cairo Opera House.
The event is organized in cooperation with Argentinean embassy in Cairo.
Rodolfo Mederos Trio consists of Rodolfo Mederos on bandoneon, Armando de La Vega on guitars, and Sergio Rivas on double bass.
Argentinean tango roots go back to 1880. In this period Argentina became a central immigration center; many European families immigrated to Buenos Aries.
Embracing various cultures, races, and musical forms harmoniously, men started to draw women’s attention through special dances in the streets.
Moving from the streets to aristocratic family saloons, the tango became the dance of choice for lovers and enjoyment seekers.
Tango music has Spanish roots. However, the music mixed jazz scales and rhythms which made it more popular.
