She has been invited to perform with well-known ensembles such as the Gaudeamus Quartet, Kamerata Krondstadt and the Contempo Quartet, as well as at major music festivals such as the George Enescu International Festival (Romania), the Radio Song Festival (Beijing, China), and the Kammermusiktage Barth Festival (Germany).

Between 2015 and 2019, she launched three successful musical projects: Tango Simfonic (first edition), Tango Simfonic „Milonga de mis amores” (second edition) and the ArgEnTango project. In 2022, she launched the Interbelic Simfonic project, dedicated to her audience in Romania.

Today, she continues to promote traditional Argentine tango and the music of Astor Piazzolla both in Romania and Europe.

Mariano Castro

Born in Buenos Aires, Mariano Castro is a complex musician, pianist, guitarist, composer, orchestrator. He settled in Romania in 2013, where he brought with him his vast musical culture, a world-renowned status and a great joy of playing.

Mariano has to his credit more than 30 international tours in many countries in Europe and around the world, such as the United States, Canada, Brazil, Ecuador, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Romania, Czech Republic and Lithuania. Together with the band Narcotango, he has been nominated twice at the Latin Grammy Awards (2009 and 2010) in the category „Best Tango Album”, in the triple capacity of performer, composer and orchestrator.

The story of Georgeta, a woman battling an aggressive form of cancer

Georgeta is a 45-year-old mother of an eight-year-old boy, Andrei. She is a strong and optimistic woman with a winning spirit and inner strength that has helped her face enormous challenges. She works two jobs in parallel to make sure her son and family get everything they need. Now, she fights for healing, motivated by a desire to see her son grow up, with the hope that she can continue to enjoy life with her family.

In March 2022, Georgi – as she is called by her close friends – was diagnosed with locally advanced multicentric invasive luminal B cancer. The situation is all the more difficult as it comes on the back of an autoimmune disease, autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura, which started when Georgeta was pregnant nine years ago.

In Romania, hormonal treatment is the only treatment available for this form of cancer, so Georgi and her family found hope at a clinic in Turkey, where she had a successful operation to remove one of her breasts. She has successfully undergone several rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but still needs long-term treatment to keep the disease under control. This involves immediate costs of more than €20 000.

Every contribution counts and will help Georgeta continue the treatment she needs to get well. You can donate to IBAN account RO57BUCU1111037793116RON, in the name of Georgeta Kovacs.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
