6. Tangokonzert mit Cuarteto Danzarín
I've been taking tango classes for the past year. I'm fascinated by the music that goes with the dance (my favorite song). Interestingly, my Argentine friends think tango is for the older generation, and the younger crowd doesn't know how to dance it. But if you're up for something different, I suggest you consider going to this tango music concert: The Berlin tango ensemble Cuarteto Danzarín will amaze you with original Argentine tangos, atmospheric ballads, and lively milonga rhythms.
