ABOUT PARLOR TANGO:
PARLOR TANGO is a trio dedicated to Argentine tango music composed, mostly, between 1910 and 1950. Its repertoire of tangos, waltzes and milongas evokes the flavor of black-and-white movies and steamy dance halls.
In Paris, the native city of Odile Lavault, tango has been very important since 1912. Traveling Argentine musicians inspired local bands. It became common for French accordion players to play bandoneon as well. Lavault is continuing this tradition
Pianist Marco Casasola brings his youthful energy to assure the rhythmic foundation of the trio. Casasola grew up surrounded by tango music and figured out rapidly how to mix his passion for jazz with his relatives’ favorite tangos.
PARLOR TANGO has performed for ODC Theater, the Navarete/ Kajiyama+ Dance Company, and tango dancers all over Northern California. PARLOR TANGO has one CD “Live at Anna’s”.
Tonight Odile and Marco will perform as a bandoneon/piano duo.
