About this show
Trio Garufa is an international ensemble dedicated to performing authentic Argentine music. They have performed across Argentina, Canada and the US (including a recent performance in Chicago Symphony Hall). Trio Garufa performs Classic Argentine Tangos from the golden era (30's- 50's) as well as Argentine Folklore Music (Chacarera, Zamba, Guarania, Gato, Chamamé) and modern Tangos from Piazzolla as well as original compositions and electro-Tango. They are the only Tango ensemble based in the US to have performed extensively in the Milongas (Tango Dance Clubs) of Buenos Aires.
Trio Garufa will offer a on hour workshop in tango before the show for $5.00 more. The tango duo includes Guillermo Garcia (Argentina), Sascha Jacobsen (USA) and Adrian Jost (Switzerland).
Trio Garufa features an international lineup playing classic and modern tango music from Argentina for dancing, including Astor Piazzolla’s nuevo tango and the timeless golden-age tangos from the Argentine legends of the 1920s-’40s. Accordionist-bandoneon player Adrian Jost grew up in Switzerland, where he played in various bands before falling under the spell of the tango. After moving to San Francisco, he met Argentine-born guitarist Guillermo Garcia in 1999. Their musical association and mutual love of Argentina’s dance music led to Trio Garufa two years later. Bassist Sascha Jacobsen rounds out the group’s classic tango instrumentation. In addition to having played at the top milongas (tango dance parties) in San Francisco and at several festivals in the U.S. and Canada, Trio Garufa has toured Argentina multiple times. When not performing, the musicians can likely be found out on the dance floor, as all three are obsessive tango dancers themselves.
