The audience of Anna Saeki's concerts will remember - they appreciated very much the "breaking up" of her Tango and Milonga program with some songs from South East Asia.

And here we are with NEGAU. Folk songs and chansons from Japan, Corea, China, Thailand, Vietnam und Mongolia, carried into a Tango spirit with sensitivnesss and empathy. Pieces of art, somehow irrititating, tender and delicate, fragile and frisky.
