Color D’Amor

Color D’ Amor play a blend of original songs and a mix of world music arranged to milonga, the dance that is the mother of tango. The rhythms of early tangos (milongas) were derived from the habanera, a Cuban rhythm and are still danced today alongside tango. Color D’ Amor, from Nanaimo, is Lou Gradanti on guitar, accordion and keyboard and Andrea Georgiev on guitar and percussion; both add vocals and have a long music history of Latin, folk, world and rock music. They have played in Nanaimo, on Gabriola and Saltpspring Islands, for events  and are a local favorite for tango dancing. This is their first appearance in Victoria.
