Roffa Tango Trio, founded in “Roffa” (slang for the city Rotterdam), is a group of musicians focusing on the new styles within the Argentinian tango music. The repertoire starts with Astor Piazzolla but goes further into exploring the tango music of today. In this style you can find a mixture of many different elements, for example tango, jazz and classical music.
This trio won the supernova competition of Klara in Belgium and played o.a. at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Podium Witteman (Dutch national tv), Festival de Tango Zárate Buenos Aires ..
