Trio Centrál (Buenos Aires / Berlin)

resulted from the collaboration of three musicians in Berlin, dedicating themselves to the Argentine Tango for many years. They all engaged intensively in the music of the Rio de la Plata playing in groups like "Sexteto Stazo Mayor", "Quinteto Ángel", "El Tropezón", "6 Australes" or "Tangocrash" and made their mark with their interpretations in the growing European tango scene.
With the instrumentation of bandoneon, piano and double bass, they go back to the roots of the traditional danced Argentine Tango, but not without giving their music a fresh sound by their own arrangement and interpretation.

Christian Gerber (bandoneon) learned his craft with greats such as JJ Mosalini and A. Marcucci. He plays with his "Quinteto Ángel," the award-winning Electronic Project "Tango Crash" and "Stazo Mayor". Also he is busy in cross-genre projects and concerts of contemporary music, film, stage and studio music (with Herbert Grönemeyer, Roger Cicero, Annett Louisan, or).
Pablo Woizinski (piano) is from Buenos Aires and has lived in Berlin since 2005. He plays in "El Tropezón", "6 Australes", "Quinteto Amortal", "Quinteto Coco Nelegatti" Trio "tangent" and "Stazo Mayor.
Rodolfo Paccapelo (double bass) is also from Buenos Aires, lives and works in Berlin since 2000. Cooperation with musicians such as John Schroeder, Rudi Mahall, Felix Wahner, Georg Pfister, Steve Grossman, Richie and Ralph Towner Beirach.He plays Tango at "6 Australes" and Christian Gerber's "Quinteto Ángel".

Tango Show: Evelyn & Esteban, Frauke & Filippo, Chantal & Sebastian


Tuesday 19|7|2011 10pm - 5 am Halftime Ball

Tangofactory (Electrotango)

The emotion of the classic Tango Argentino hits the pulse of jazz, rock, Drumn'Bass, techno and hip-hop. It's music to dance to!
On the basis of groovy beats and electronic effects and sequencer loops the bandoneon and the saxophone unfold in a melodic dialogue - complementing each other melancholy, sometimes competing brilliantly.
Tango Factory is an acoustic mirror image of a floating pair and an irresistible invitation to dance.

Michael Dolak (bandoneon) plays Tango in many important groups, such Cuarteto Rotterdam, Luis Borda Ensemble, Sabor A Tango, Sexteto Andorinha and Gotan Project (to name just a few ...)
Bertram Quosdorf (saxophone) plays classical and contemporary music, jazz, acid - and Latin jazz. He is director of the award-winning "statt-theater FASSUNGSLOS" (Dresden) and author of interactive music games.

Tango Show: Mirjam & Max, Sabine & Jörg, Steffi & Tobias

Saturday 23|7|201 10pm - 5 am1 Participiciants Ball Surprice

Ich bin Blindtext. Von Geburt an. Es hat lange gedauert, bis ich begriffen habe, was es bedeutet, ein blinder Text zu sein: Man macht keinen Sinn. Man wirkt hier und da aus dem Zusammenhang gerissen. Oft wird man gar nicht erst gelesen. Aber bin ich deshalb ein schlechter Text? Ich weiss, dass ich nie die Chance haben werde, im Stern zu erscheinen. Aber bin ich darum weniger wichtig? Ich bin blind! Aber ich bin gerne Text. Und sollten Sie mich jetzt tatsächlich zu Ende lesen, dann habe ich etwas geschafft, was den meisten "normalen" Texten nicht gelingt.
