Today we were guests in Carlsfeld by zoom at the inauguration of the new bandoneon sculpture.
It was in Carlsfeld where this iconic instrument was born. There was the factory of the famous DOBLE A (AA), made by Alfred Arnold, played by our precious musicians like Anibal Troilo, Astor Piazzolla, Leopoldo Federico, José Libertella and many more. The instruments were previously manufactured by the father, Ernst Luis Arnold (ELA bandoneón). Many years before, the factory belonged to a certain Zimmermann who had the idea to build this kind of foldable, air-powered and transportable instrument.
Heinrich Band from Krefeld sold and shipped them all over the world and changed the pitch. Mistakenly he is considered as the inventor, honestly he gave the sound and name to the instrument. Because of the wall that separated Germany, the truth was not known for many years.
Despite the fall of the Wall in 1989, books are still being written that lack the much needed truth. Ergo: laurels do not always land on the right head….

In 2014 we were invited to become a member of CID UNESCO. In 2017 the director Alkis Raftis came to Paris to see our play VIDA at the Folies Bergére. Here we took a photo in the beautiful foyer.
Josephine Baker, Mata Hari, Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra, Charly Chaplin performed at the Folies Bergère. What a historic place! You can breathe in pure art.

 

VIDA präsentiert sich nach 3 Jahren Pause nun erstmals wieder in Europa. 12 Tänzer auf der Bühne, die sich auch in Live Musik einbringen. Ein großartiger Artikel aus Langenfeld von der Rheinischen Post hier zu lesen

Da ist mal eine tolle Idee entstanden. Den Tango improvisieren, keine Choreographie. So wie wir tanzen, privat.

Spannende Fragen, lebendige Atmosphäre

The new VIDA Show at the sold out Theatre Astral on Corrientes Avenue, Buenos Aires, the Broadway of Argentina. Standing Ovations. 12 artists back on stage after 2 years pandemic.
