Project Description

SAX & TANGO

“From a star when it flickers, it will signal me to go, for a light of eternity, when it calls me, I will go”. A story of love and nostalgia, perhaps a declaration of intentions, but above all the principle of that “Adiós Nonino”, which, when it sounds, makes the world stop. Joined Binelli-Ferman duo and Púrpura Pansa, born Sax&Tango, an atypical fusion of instruments, which flows as if they were known throughout their lives, a concert where the roots and respect of this wonderful genre are maintained, in which Tangos, Milongas and Ballads will bring us to live this passionate music in the most authentic and profound way.

Coincidence or not, four Valencian musicians, Púrpura Pansa, in love with a folklore thousands of kilometers away, which is both felt and interpreted as their own, and a path that intersects with Tango’s life story, Daniel Binelli. Talking about Daniel Binelli, is talking about one of the most prolific masters of the bandoneon ever existed, composer and arranger, battle partner of Astor Piazzolla, and that together with the wonderful Uruguayan pianist Polly Ferman, expert music performer of the America’s music, they take this genre to every corner of the world, with that passion that makes this music unique.

Daniel Binelli and Polly Ferman, musicians of international fame, have joined their talents to develop and to increase the appreciation of tango, milonga, candombe and other Latin American musical forms, in an unusual alliance of bandoneon and piano. His performances reflect the elegance and subtlety of traditional tango, the mischievousness of the milonga, the romance of the waltz and the temperament and power of contemporary tango. The ability of the Binelli and Ferman Duo to reach audiences with word and music, has made their performances, an amazing experience, for enthusiastic audiences throughout the world.

“With the teamwork of Binelli and Ferman, the nostalgia is remarkable, the lyrical passion and the pulsating dance rhythms that pace the works of Piazzolla are extraordinary.”

“The two musicians combined in captivating improvisational flights from which pure magic emanated of jazz”
The Washington Post
