Tango Harmonica - Joe Powers Tango Quintet

An Oregon native who was trained in tango-crazy Buenos Aires, and who has performed in such wide-ranging locales as Tokyo, Paris, London, Geneva, and San Francisco, harmonica virtuoso Joe Powers welcomes new musical adventures and thrives on expanding the horizons of his instrument. Joe, his international quartet, and a troupe of dancers will perform the music that fires the most passionate and intimate of dances, the tango.

Included will be traditional tangos, waltzes, and milongas such as:
Desde el Alma, by R. Melo
Flor de Lino, H. Stamponi
La Cumparsita, by G. M. Rodriguez
Nocturna, by J. Plaza
Por Una Cabeza, by C. Gardel

and contemporary compositions such as Tango Negro, by J. C. Caceres, and tango nuevo compositions by Astor Piazzolla such as:
Adios Nonino
Ave Maria: Tanti Anni Prima

Joe Powers Tango Quintet: Joe Powers, harmonica; Guillermo Garcia, guitar; Bernardo Gomez, bass; Jesse Brooke, percussion; and Octavio Brunetti, piano; Joe Cope, Hayley Bright; Momo Smitt, Miwa Elle, dancers
