A good number of participants, including diplomats of various countries, dignitaries and artists were present at the concert which was jointly organised by Embassy of the Argentine Republic and Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA). Federal Secretary for Ministry of National Heritage and Integration, Farid ullah Khan was the chief guest. Appreciating the performance of the artistes, he said that “Argentine music, particularly Tango, can help promote bilateral relations between the two countries.” Earlier, addressing the guests, Argentine Ambassador Rodolfo Martin Saravia said that “Tango of Guitar show is an endeavour to introduce traditional Argentinian music in Pakistan” as well as to build cultural bridges between Argentina and Pakistan.
“Though it is our first voyage to Pakistan, but the overwhelming response from the people here has convinced us to hold more concerts in other cities of Pakistan” said Jose Cataldi expressing gratitude for Pakistanis.
“Traditional Tangos are accompanied with dance and songs, however we are specialized in guitar, which is one of the first instruments of the Tango,” told Cataldi. Out of the 15 short mellow performances, two were harmonized with songs.
