Born in the streets and growing to have a unique history with alternating phases of magnificence and ostracism, the Argentine Tango was recently declared by UNESCO Cultural Patrimony for Humanity. In this spirit we united our efforts to bring here the most representative talents of this genre. These artists have left a permanent mark in the history of tango and it is a privilege to have them in Vancouver.
We believe that La Garufa is a great opportunity to support art and its cultural diversity in a country and city which pride themselves for embracing multiculturalism. We hope that our mission statement available on the website conveys the strong message we seek to deliver.
If you think that this festival is something you would like to support, we would be happy to hear from you.
TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS: THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING IN US!!!!!!
