La Rebelión del Tango




La Rebelión del Tango started as a new band in late 2016, when violinist Jeffrey Maneval met guitarist Ken Pasciak at a small Middlebury cafe. Over a crisp cider, they watched a young couple walk through a courtyard, seduced by the moment, lost in time and love. In these difficult times, how we cling to sensibility and logic, how we become slaves to life’s necessities and give up what it really means to be human– we become immune to lust, to optimism, to passion. Bassist Ronald White and pianist Michael Gaydos create an eloquent and contemporary foundation and core, with bandoneonist/accordionist Michel Lajeunesse bringing a decidedly Montreal contemporary jazz influence. La Rebelión seeks to fight back against the oppression of life and time, and offer a fierce resistance to routine, a fusion of the past and of the present, blurring the lines between objective truth and subjectivity. For a moment, we ask that you allow yourself to forsake the cycle of birth and death for lust and passion, renounce time for timelessness, and allow yourself be seduced by the Argentine streets.
