Tanghetto:
Tanghetto brings to the stage of the Argentina Food, Wine & Culture Festival its original creations of electrotango that have gained them praise all over the world. Tanghetto was created by a concept and idea of Max Masri. It began being a study project that was taking identity towards the year 2002. Soon Diego San Velázquez joined him. This is how the debut album "Emigrante" was composed, inspired by the crisis that was experienced in Argentina at that time. The addition of the word "electrotango" warned that the content of the album was somewhat removed from the traditional tango. With the passage of time, the term "electrotango", used for the first time to refer to the music of Tanghetto, was used to baptize an entire musical movement that emerged in those years.

La Tropilla Malambo:
The presence of Matias and Nicolas Rivas is another highlight of the Argentina Food, Wine & Culture Festival. Sensation of America's Got Talent, they belong to La Tropilla Malambo, a professional family company of bombo, malambo and boleadoras. Their dexterity, rhythm, precision, soul and heart will take your breath away.

Carla Bianchi & Nicolas Filipeli
Carla started dancing Tango in the Milongas of Buenos Aires and immediately was considered a born Milonguera. She began studying with the most prestigious teachers, such as Javier Rodriguez, Carlos Riarola, Carlitos Perez, Juan Carlos Copes and others. In 2012 she won the 2nd place of the Metropolitan Competition of the City of Buenos Aires, one of Argentina's most famous Tango Championship. Carla is been touring in US for de last three years and she is been performing in every edition of the Argentine Festival in Atlanta.

Nicolas started dancing stage and salon style Tango from a very young age. As a teenager he competed in youth tournaments in Buenos Aires, winning several medals. He studied with many teachers like Roberto Herrera, Osvaldo Zotto, Javier Rodriguez, Silvio La Via, El Pibe Sarandi, Carlitos Perez, and Gabriel Angio. In August of 2014, together with his brother German, he won 4th place at the renowned Word Tango Championship - Stage Category in Buenos Aires. Carla and Nicolas' dancing style is very elegant, combining simplicity with a strong emphasis on the original essence of Tango. They started teaching at the National School of Tango of Buenos Aires, at the Carlos Copello’s School of Tango and Café Tortoni. They have toured trough United States, China, South Korea, Spain, Italy and Brazil, and have worked in many of the most prestigious Tango houses of Buenos Aires—Homero Manzi, Café Tortoni, Café de los Angelitos, Madero Tango and Rojo Tango (Hotel Faena). In 2013 and 2014 they performed in South Korea, Australia and Indonesia with the company Reflexión Tango. In 2015 Carla and Nicolas traveled Belgium, Italy and Greece with the well-known Orchestra El Arranque de Ignacio Varchausky, and taught at the Theatre Carcano in Milan.

Athens Tango Project:
Athens Tango Project brings Argentine tango music in its pure form, while also collaborating with local North American musicians to create its own sound. Athens Tango Project started in Athens, Georgia, when Laura Camacho, a native of Argentina, started playing tango with local jazz musicians and international classical graduate students from The University of Georgia that wanted to learn the style. Laura has shared the stage with artists like Mariano Mores and Sexteto Mayor. Athens Tango Project has performed throughout the United States, and was featured in local Ted Talks, NPR, as well as the documentary @Athens Rising, by James Preston, for which they arranged a cover of an R.E.M. song into a tango, and wrote original music. Some of the group’s collaborations include members of Drive-By Truckers, Pylon, and The Olivia Tremor Control.
