The government of Uruguay has declared Tango Lovers Company “Ambassador of their brand” during a recent announcement made yesterday. TANGO LOVERS productions have already been awarded by the Association of Critics of Entertainment of New York and FOX Music Awards for BEST SHOW OF THE YEAR, in 2015, and two times in 2017, and as BEST INTERNATIONAL PRODUCER by AUREA in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
“As a highly recognized genre from both Uruguay and Argentina, tango is considered one of the world's intangible cultural heritage, said Pierina Asti-Schulz, executive director of Tango Lovers Company. “Coming from the government, this appointment validates and reinforce the cultural and artistic value of TANGO LOVERS presentations, aggregating at the same time an added distinction to our brand”.
In 2018, TANGO LOVERS premiered in NEW YORK their latest production “I AM TANGO” and later on “YO SOY TANGO” for Spanish speaking countries.
After a successful season in Latin America, they will return to the United States in October of this year, touring 11 cities starting in Chicago on October 4th, Washington DC, New York, Boston, New Jersey, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Houston, Miami and ending in Fort Lauderdale on October 20th to continue their Euro-Asia tour.
For the fifth consecutive year, Copa Airlines will be their official carrier which will bring the cast directly from Uruguay and Argentina to the US stages.
I AM TANGO is presented as a story line where its talented cast of musicians, dancers and singers present a unique experience. The genre is represented by a character named TANGO. The character questions the bandoneon about the evolution of the music and goes back to the past to witness himself the fusions that the genre has experienced. He thinks that the genre is dying and starts getting crazy, but soon realizes that the preservation and continuity of tango is due to the genius of the composers that have been able to bring the traditional tango to our contemporary days with different versions and fusions of tango making its mark all over the world.
“I AM TANGO” by TANGO LOVERS generates the appropriate creative setting through music, dance, fashion styles, glamorous costumes, lighting and multimedia to engage the audience’s senses into the world of tango.

A bit of Tango history
Argentina and Uruguay have been exporting their talent to the world from the early 1900’s making tango universally known in all continents. Prominent names in the tango arena such as Villoldo, Francisco Canaro, Carlos Gardel, Gerardo Matos and Astor Piazzola are widely known around the globe. People from all over the planet and different cultures is attracted by the genre and thousands of Milongas - or houses where tango is danced - exist in distant countries such as Russia, Japan, China, Australia, Turkey, Morocco, Germany, etc. In 2009, this deep-rooted tradition of dance and music from the Rio de la Plata basin was declared by the United Nations as part of the world's "intangible cultural heritage".
