This year’s festival presents fabulous Tango and Latin music with two headlining acts. Bandoneonista and music educator Dr. Ben Thomas brings his quartet to Victoria to perform a concert and hold workshops for musicians. Monica Parra of Buenos Aires also performs and teaches in this festival with her partner Mariano Padenera.
                                                
Both Thomas and Parra have performed and studied with some of the revered figures in tango, respectively bandoneonista Osvoldo Montes (director of the Academia Nacional de Tango) and tango dancer Carlos Gavito (of the famous and first tango Broadway show, Forever Tango). Through their tutelage of people like Thomas and Parra, these greats of tango have educated the next generation. Montes and Gavito have been responsible for the continuance of tango and all their protégés, Ben Thomas and Monica Parra, contributed to the development of this genre.
