Shanghai's passion for tango!
The Gardel Trio is one of the leading tango ensembles in Asia. It appeared on the Shanghai music scene as a result of the passion for tango music by its members. Currently they are actively participating in different milongas and concerts around the country. In March 2017, The Gardel Trio released their debut album Reliquias, produced by the label Skaði Records.
Music, dance and style
Since The Gardel Trio was born as a partner project with dancing tango enthusiasts, their repertoire is mainly designed for teachers and milonga goers to enjoy and dance, thus creating a musical atmosphere with a clear influence by Argentinian "orquestas típicas" such as Pugliese's and D'arienzo's. The trio has also a concert tango repertoire with compositions by Galliano and Piazzolla, among others. The Trio is currently working on several projects such as incorporating Chinese musical instruments into tango music, experimenting with musical theater and choreography in partnership with Shanghai dance companies and exploring new ideas in order to enrich their standard tango repertoire.
