Tangonero is a San Francisco based ensemble dedicated to preserving the tradition of Argentine Tango. From the folk styling of Roberto Grela to the jazz infused grandeur of Astor Piazzolla, their arrangements cover the broad scope of tango history. Overflowing with intense passion, desire and sorrow, their performance captures the fire of the dance and the essence of a culture. Tangonero won the CMC Shenson Award, performed at festivals and shared stage with Grammy Artists. They are training and performing with internationally acclaimed tango musicians. Tangonero released two tango albums, and are actively working in both dance and concert scene.
