Folias Duo at Quantum Tango 2019
June 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15
Folias Duo makes their yearly return to Quantum Tango in June 2019. The Milonga is located at Grapes and Hops in the coastal town of Ventura California. We invite everyone to not only dance “to” our music but also “with” our music.
As both tango dancers and tango musicians, Carmen Maret and Andrew Bergeron of the Folias Duo have performed at milongas and taught musicality classes featuring their own “Golden Era” tango arrangements since 2003. They have played their original arrangements for social dancing in over forty tango communities throughout the United States, Chile and Argentina, including the Burning Tango Festival (2016, 2017, 2018), the A-B-QTango Festival (2018), the Albuquerque Tango Society, the Madison Tango Society, Esquina Tango Austin, Quantum Tango, Decir Tango, Wasatch Tango Club, Tango Berretín and at festivals such as the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, and the Atlin Music Festival.
The husband-and-wife team of Andrew Bergeron and Carmen Maret form a multitalented flute and guitar duo called Folias Duo that specializes in danceable tango music. Here’s what Lee Passarella of Audiophile Audition writes about their album Tango and Snow: “My reaction to Tango and Snow convinces me even more that I’m not so averse to the tango as I am to the tango done up in black tie and tails. I’m much happier with tangos done by modest performing forces, tangos that remember their dance hall roots.”
