Local Tango Group to Pay Tribute to Astor Piazzolla with Series of Shows

Concert Announcement


Cleveland-based the Oblivion Project, a group which includes graduates from the Cleveland Institute of Music, the New England Conservatory, Oberlin Conservatory, the Conservatory of Music in Cologne, Germany and other notable institutions, is a tango band that pays homage to the music of Argentine tango master Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla lived long enough to go through several different phases. There was the early “Parisian period,” the “eclectic middle period” and the “final and innovative years.” The group plays music from all these eras and selections include pieces from his opera, Maria de Buenos Aires, as well as hits such as “Balada Para Un Loco” and “Los Pajaros Perdidos.”

Along with Brooklyn-based Latin singer and storyteller Migguel Anggelo, the group performs at 7 and 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 21 at the Happy Dog and at 7 and 8:30 p.m. on Friday, July 24, at BLU Jazz in Akron. It's also slated to perform as part of Near West Fiesta, a special event hosted by the local BlueWater Chamber Orchestra that takes place from 3 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, on the Saint Ignatius High School Campus.
