Whether they play in quartet, sextet or full orchestra formation, the musicians of Silencio know how to seduce and excite the tango audience. The profound quality of their music has been inspired by the traditional orchestras of Buenos Aires from the Golden Age of Tango and the legendary styles of Pugliese, D’Arienzo, Biagi, Di Sarli and Gobbi. At the heart of Silencio is the talented argentinean pianist Roger Helou who has been one of the driving forces behind the boom of live tango music in Europe. Roger is an acclaimed musician, arranger and teacher of tango music who has spent many years researching the arrangements, the styles and the techniques of the great tango orchestras in the history of tango. For the concert of Silencio in Sofia he brings the orchestra’s leading members, including bandoneonist Jose Luis Betancor (Uruguay), violinist Amadeo Espina (Argentina) and double bass player Wini Holzenkamp (Germany).
