Joris Linssen en Caramba, cross-over show

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gvu9GZsGg1g

Joris Linssen en Caramba play mexican norteño music, translated into dutch. For several years we performed together on festivals and in theaters, adding tango to the mix.

We performed among others during festivals in Rotterdam, Fort Vechten, Oerol, Libelle Zomerweek, Marion Bloem’s manifestatie “een Royaal Gebaar” and a theater tour in the Netherlands, performing in 40 theaters in 10 weeks.

The fragment below is how it all started: a performance on Dutch national television to promote a cross-culture festival where Joris and our tango couple mixed our music and dance. For this TV gig the band Caramba reunited, and the six of us had such a positive vibe that night we worked together for over 5 years.

The tango we are dancing to is Milongueando en el 40 by Anibal Troilo.
The Winkel van Sinkel is one of Utrecht’s most remarkable grand cafes and for many years drew tango dancers from all over The Netherlands and from abroad on the second sunday of each month. It is a tango venue to this day.
