 Some artists 

The bandoneonist,  producer and singer Gonzalo Tohmé Bedini will be in charge of opening the festival. The musician is recognized in the Mendoza music scene for his participation in the group Altertango and collaborations with international artists and orchestras.

In his solo project, he brings together tango with other urban music, such as  hip-hop , rock and jazz. From that experience came his first album Cambido  la piel,  where he brings together his own compositions. This album was made entirely by Tohmé, all instruments, voices and techniques.

He is currently on the recording of his second album, which will have as guests Patricio Ibire, Mario Galvan and Susy Shock, with whom he has composed several songs. In addition, he has scheduled a European tour for 2021. 

Another of the artists invited to the meeting is the singer-songwriter and actor José Armando Bendelé. In addition to his extensive career on stage, starring in musicals and sharing concerts with figures of national music, Mendocino in his solo work ventured into tango, with songs of his authorship, which were recorded on the album  Eclectico (2017), where brings together different ballads, bossa nova songs and tango songs.

Meanwhile, Tangos Confdidos , the group composed of Alejandro Canillas, Cacho Benegas, Leonardo Martínez and Rubén Martínez, takes the genre to create their own songs, with a modern and local perspective, without losing the unique Rioplatan style.

On Saturday, the composer and pianist from Mendoza Paula Rosas will end the festival. His debut album, Corazonada , transits different genres of Argentine popular music, to solo piano. Milongas, chacareras and even a cueca, sifted from a perspective that also approaches  jazz .
