Exiles and Encounters : behind the stories of tango weaves together heartfelt and humorous songs, deftly executed instrumental pieces and colourful storytelling from the intriguing world of Argentine Tango. Part of its history is a result of the numerous European migrants and refugees that flooded Buenos Aires at the turn of the 20th century and between the wars. Stories of love lost and found, of nostalgia and new beginnings. Much later on, the dictatorship in the 70’s pushed many Argentines into the reality of exile, bringing them back to Europe. And many of them found a way to make a living through tango, as performers or dancers…
 
Guillermo Rozenthuler- vocals
Buenos Aires-born vocalist and guitarist Guillermo Rozenthuler, based in Great Britain since 2000, has become the one of the leading voices of Argentine Tango in the UK. A soulful and versatile singer, he can be heard across Europe and the UK with the London Tango Orchestra, Pinta Brava and Tango Clasico Trio. Guillermo is also lead vocalist with Rioplatenses  and Musica Paradiso.
 
John Turville- piano
