A Unique Tango Festival

The ultimate aim is to juxtapose the two beautiful cultures, Indonesian and Argentinean, each enhancing the charisma of the other country.

This year, Tango in Paradise’18 choose a traditional fabric with traditional Bali.

On the basis of this mixed culture, We invite, for 3rd time, Solo Tango – Tango musicians from Russia, to have them performing tango music at the festival. Traditional dance from Bali will collaborate with the tango dancers at the festival. We know it is a difficult task for them, but nevertheless we would like to give the collaboration a chance. This year 4 couples of Tango Masters – Facundo Pinero y Vanessa Vilalba, Gabriel Ponce y Analia Morales, Luis Ramirez y Analia Carenno, Michael Nadtochi y Paula Duarte, will collaborate with Balinese dancers. We are pretty sure they will produce magical dance pieces between them.

The famous International tango DJ – Alejandro Jaime (Argentina), Shinji Ii (Japan), Odeyssus Dada (South Korea), Irma Lesmana and Agoez De Zell (Indonesia) will spin the music to companying the tango lovers in expressing their desire on the dance floor. The guest dancers and organizers – Odysseus Dada y Tae Hee (Seoul), Jack Allan y Milena Utomo (Indonesia), Maicol Mira y Irma Lesmana (Indonesia), Ferrol Matthew y Amelia Rambe (Indonesia), Jorence Altoveros y Jelica Yap (Phillipine), HsinDa Lee y Anna Chin (Taipei), and many more will perform in the traditional night, and David Alejandro Palo (Argentina) will be the choreographer of the night. The art director of this event is Vieter Christian Simanjuntak (Indonesia).

After lessons and practice together with the maestro, for those who like competing, there will be “in house” competition, which only participants of Tango in Paradise’18 can join this.

There are a variety of activities to be held in this event. Those activities are a series of mutually supporting struts and enrich the technical knowledge (theoretical and practical), and the philosophy of tango Dance. The whole activities will enrich the participants to understand tango in depth. Our activities comprise tango classes, workshops with the teachers, milonga, spiritual activities (yoga, meditation), and sight seeing.
