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.

  •  Mozambican Poet

Tango … sensuality, passion, sadness that transcended borders, embraced Africa, bringing with it the dimension of nostalgia, passion, melancholy, blending with local rhythms and providing a deep and universal culture. Tango … so familiar in our lands, harmonized in steps and sonorities in conjunction with local celebrations from different parts of the country.

From the passion for music, joy and dynamism of the group, the MozTango Orchestra is born and nurtured. The first musical audacity specially dedicated to Argentine tango in Mozambique, bringing together musicians from various styles.
