LA ORQUESTA DE TANGO DE LA UNA
- Nominated for the Latin Grammy 2017 -
A documentary about tango, tradition, originality and University.
As a commemoration of the 10 years of activity of the Tango Orchestra of the National University of the Arts (UNA), the documentary “Una Década” was released on November 30, 2020, with the special participation of Susana Rinaldi, José Colangelo, Cristina Vázquez, Roque de Pedro and many more.
“Una Decada” is not only the story of how Tango flourished and developed in the fertile space of the National University of the Arts, but it also sensitively presents us with the complexity of the frameworks that make up the place of Tango in culture. On November 30, 2010 chords of the Tango Orchestra UNA (National University of Arts) sounded for the first time. That concert would mark the beginning of a series of events that would put in tension the limits between popular music and academic music, as well as the relationship between tradition and originality, highlighting the multiplicity of meanings that Tango is capable of assuming.
