Anguelov comes from Bulgaria. Stanislav studied at the Academy
of Music and Dance in Plovdiv, Bulgaria with Peter Marinov and
received a degree in accordion in 1991, after which he taught
at the "Constantine Preslavsky" University in Shumen.
He has taken part in competitions and concerts in Bulgaria, France
and Poland, both as a soloist or member of an accordion orchestra.
In 1992 he moved to Cape Town in South Africa, where he teaches
Stanislav has completed recordings
of Classical Music for the SABC (South African Broadcasting Corporation),
and has been featured in many CD's with other artists. He released
his solo album called "Stanislav" in 1998 and the first
CD of his Cape Town Tango Ensemble called "El Tango en Africa"
was released in May 2003. In 2001 he appeared with the Cape Town
Tango Ensemble in the production of the show "Tango del Fuego"
at Oude Libertas Amphitheatre; Grahams town, Klein Karoo and Potchefstroom
Arts Festivals; and in the TV series "Back stage" on
is a leader of the following Ensembles: Cape Town Tango Ensemble
(accordion, violin, piano & bass); Blue Danube Trio (violin,
accordion & bass); Mediterranean Ensemble (violin, accordion
& mandolin); and Playing with Fire (clarinet or saxophone
In addition, he very often accompanies opera singers. He is also
member of the "Simka" Klezmer band and often performs
as a soloist at Concerts or Corporate and Private Functions.
Featuring a genre of tango, the
Cape Town Tango Ensemble shows a potent, full bodied and competent
performance. A great variety of tango composers are presented
on this recording: Piazzolla, Galliano, Malando, Florio, Gardel
and others, which offers a variety within the genre and makes
it really interesting. Stanislav does a professional job on the
accordion as does the Ensemble as a whole. The pianist in particular,
made quite an impression on me. On some tracks (1, 5, 13) different
kinds of African drums were used (Talking Drum from Ghana, Kayomba
from Kenya, Djembe Drum from West Africa), and that gave a special
African 'flavor' of wildness and mystery to those particular numbers
- I found them colorful and interesting. The Cape Town Tango Ensemble
are quite good at what they are doing. ****
