Three sets of lively Latin artists join forces with an acclaimed tango instructor to set toes tapping inside the exotic global enclave of Drom, which the Village Voice voted Best New Dance Club of 2011. On March 1, the Pereya, Teubal & Barenboim Tango Trio marries traditional Argentine tango with jazz harmony through whimsical clarinet, sultry piano and the powerhouse pipes of crooner Pablo Pereyra, spurring guests to sweeping romantic gestures such as proposing at a PTA meeting. Lightning-fingered Gustavo Casenave spiritedly tickles the ivories alongside the deep thumps of Pedro Giraudo’s soul-shaking standup bass on Friday, and Saturday sends a pulse through the room with the tango of Amapola Dry.
For the first hour of each program, tangoists dive into a Latin dinner of chicken, rice, beans, potatoes, and salad set under the shimmering light of the Turkish chandelier. At evening’s end, a rose for each lady present lets dates know they are loved and provides a gourmet lunch for their pet bumblebee at home.
