Ben Molar was behind the creation of the “National Tango Day” , which is celebrated worldwide every December 11th, commemorating the birth dates of the creators of two tango aspects, "The voice " (Carlos Gardel, el Zorzal Criollo (the Creole thrush) , idol and leading tango figure) and "Music " ( Julio De Caro , great conductor and genre reformist).
This day of tango is celebrated in several countries.
So, we also celebrate this important event in Fukuoka with an incredible program, such as a screening of a documentary, an excellent concert by Leonardo Bravo and Kumiko Kondo, and a dance show by our teachers Bruno and Cintia.
