Do you love the suave and moody tangos of Astor Piazolla? You will hear some of Piazolla’s music and plenty more South American inspired tango in this concert by Daniel Rojas, Sydney based composer and musician. With Peruvian and Chilean roots, Daniel Rojas plays the music of his ancestral homelands, as well as his own Latin inspired compositions. With Daniel Wallace-Crabbe on bandeneon, this concert will transport you to exotic lands.
