África Tango / 1° Festival Internacional de Tango Maputo

Born from the encounter between various cultures of the world, Tango Argentino carries in its innards the rhythm of the drum. Seal of Africanity “claimed” in this dance that the earth starts and in it deposited its movements.

Tango … ritual of joy, sadness, friendship, passion, glamor, daring, sensation, bold affirmation of the deepest feelings of a people … of humanity !!!!

Today the world’s cultural heritage …. Tango … Mozambique is the scene of its expansion and identity, combining artistic, cultural and intellectual expressions consecrated in this art, perfect imitation of life.

Tango, an African heritage that, in addition to the whole world, also vibrates in the Mozambican spirit.

Lyliana Kamenova & Emiliano Fernández

Lyliana – Tango influenced my art by exploring the dynamics between stillness and movement, as well as the desire to create stories. I find the complexity and controversy of the human personality

Emiliano – To dance and to teach is to transmit all the love and respect I feel for Tango, a dance that has its own culture, structure and rules, and it is this culture that I belong to, Tango is my passion.

Liana Marisa  & Fulgêncio Samo

Liana – Audacity to try something new and different was the initial attraction of a dance transformed into addiction and passion, aiming the unattainable perfection of a contagious, promising and revealing dance.

Fulgêncio -From the passion for music comes my tango metamorphosed into rhythm, movement, spirituality and body expression of the deepest feelings of human infinity.

Frias Fumo & Carla Faria

Frias – From the deepest need for transformation and the purest of feelings comes Dance as the connecting language of humanity. Encounter of souls in a warm hug that leads to happiness.
