Hürriyet Daily News
Juan Carlos Caceres is taking the stage in Istanbul tonight with a show titled “The Architect of new Tango.” The concert starts at 8 p.m. at CRR Concert hall in the Harbiye neighborhood in Şişli and tickets are available at Biletix booths at prices ranging from 17 to 34 Turkish Liras.
Born in Buenos Aires in the 1940’s, Juan Carlos Cáceres was an accomplished jazz trombonist by his mid-twenties and though he studied fine arts at the university rather than music, he quickly became a fixture in the Buenos Aires jazz community. In the late ‘60s Caceres relocated to Paris, where he engaged in a wide variety of artistic pursuits, including painting, producing, teaching and above all, playing. During this period, he became an expert on the music of the Río de la Plata, styles such as tango, milonga, murga, and candombe.
His interest in the various styles of tango has led him to start other projects in widely different formats than his more percussion-guided solo records. Along with Sedef Ercetin on cello and Sasha Rozhdestvensky on violin, he has also founded the more traditional “golden age” tango group “París Gotán Trío.” He released his last album in 2011 “Noche de Carnaval.”
