On Friday, May 13, and Saturday, May 14, Seattle's 17th Tango Cabaret hits the stage at Century Ballroom. The show's feature performers are internationally acclaimed Guillermo Salvat and Silvia Grynt, with special guest numbers by Seattle Tango professionals. This show has two fantastic and totally different singers, Argentine vocalist Ernesto Rassi and tango rapper Momo Smitt. The spectacular performances of dancing and music combined with fine dining before the show, and social dancing after the show will create a truly unique evening of elegance.
Guillermo Salvat and Silvia Grynt have performed around the world and have starred in several of Buenos Aires' most popular shows. They have taught Tango throughout the United States and Europe, but this will be their first time in Seattle. Tango dancers will love their workshops and everyone will love the Cabaret. The inspired dancing of Guillermo and Silvia will explore all the passion, playfulness and richness of Argentine Tango.
Ernasto Rassi sings from his heart capturing the sole of tango. El canta muy tradicional. He was born in Argentina where he studied music, dance and theater, then spent 20 years in Spain, working in theater centered around Argentine Tango. This will be his first time performing in Seattle. He currently is the Director of California a Todo Tango Company.
Momo Smitt is a rapper from Ashland, Oregon, who loves Argentine Tango. He describes his music as socially conscious Hip Hop based in recovery, personal growth, politics, equality, and the environment. He is a truly unique performer whose music will surprise and inspire you.
The rest of the cast includes dance instructors Michelle Badion, Wladimir Pino, Evan Wallace, Patty Leverett, Alison Cockrill, Pablo Tapia, Erica Atnip, Rex Kinney, Kirsten Barron, Carmen Elisa Valencia, Greg Frost, Vivian Konstantakos, Brian Halbert, Rachel Burnton and some surprises.
The hosts for the evening will be Ernesto and Momo. They will have fun debating the merits of tradition tango verses the Nuevo tango. Each number expresses tango in a different way, from the most traditional to the most modern, exploring its passion, glamour, fantasy, romance, drama and humor, mesmerizing audiences once again with the intricacies, power and beauty of Argentine Tango. Both singers will have their CDs for sale after the show.
