Love ain't dead, no siree. Here's our round up of Valentine's Day events happening around Guangzhou: 

February 13-14: Danny Malando Dance Orchestra 

Born Arie Maasland, Dutch musician A. Malando founded the Malando Dance Orchestra – a light music and dance orchestra – in 1937, and toured throughout the Netherlands before being invited to perform in Nazi Germany. Soon, A. Malando’s compositions grew immensely popular, especially between 1944-1960. The many tangos he composed are among the most played around the world. In 1999, Danny Malando, grandson of A. Malando, took charge of the orchestra. His pursuit of perfection and musical talent enabled Malando Dance Orchestra to grow into the charming and versatile orchestra it is today. On Valentine’s Day, Danny Malando and his orchestra will bring their incredible history and musical prowess to music fans in Guangzhou.
