Ensemble Mariposa

A single common denominator: the passion for tango in all its forms... listened, danced, played.

Tango dancers, instrument teachers

The Ensemble Mariposa is inspired by the classical tradition of the Argentine tango of the "Golden Age" for the type of song arrangements.

The tango for the Ensemble Mariposa is culture, a meeting that does not need words, social masks, but just listening to another body, along with music.

Members of the Ensemble:

  • Emilia Belfiore (violin)
  • Denis Marino (guitar)
  • Seby Burgio (piano)
  • Kim Baiunco (bass)

The ensemble was founded in 2011, thanks to the encouragement of Angelo Grasso and Elena Alberti, immediately becoming the strenght of CataniaTangoFestival 2011.

The Ensemble Mariposa consists of Italian-Argentine musicians and proposes the classics of Argentine tango in original arrangements, developed specifically for the Ensemble: a vast repertoire of songs perfect to accompany dancing (during milonga or shows) or simply for listening.

These music programs are carefully selected and differentiated for the several different purposes.

The Ensemble Mariposa, during these years of intense activity performed concert in the most important milongas, it has also been a guest on several Argentine Tango Festival, and for the occasion international couples of artist have danced on his music (Zotto y Guspero, Barrios y Melo, Corbata y Cionci, Veredice y Hobert, Rosas y Natoli, Reis y Lavandeira, Cardozo y Klurfan, Murat y Michelle Erdemsel).

 

"The Argentine Tango is an indestructible virus:
not all become infected, but when it happen this is irreversible."
