LEXINGTON, Ky.—On Friday, September 26, The World Voices Series at Transylvania University presents the Tami Tango Trio from Buenos Aires, for a night of tango.  The concert will take place in Carrick Theater at 7:30 p.m.

The Tami Tango Trio will showcase tangos, milongos and valses, as well as other traditional music. The trio has recorded five albums and toured throughout the United States and Latin America.

"I'm thrilled that Transylvania is dedicated to the awareness of world music-cultures," says World Voices Series director and professor of music Larry Barnes. "It's vital that we engage peoples of the world proactively, and bring their values to light. This series gives the community an opportunity to do just that, through the intense communicative power of music and dance."

In recent years, the World Voices Series has presented music of the Middle East, Brazilian Capoiera music and dance and Indian classical raga, featuring musicians of international stature. The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the public relations office at (859) 233-8120.
