One of Australia's foremost Tango ensembles, Tángalo is a shape shifter on the scene, from duo to full symphony orchestra and everything in between, whatever guise the ensemble chooses, the music of the Argentine Tango is presented with skill, craft, passion, joy and grit. Described by Sydney Morning Herald's John Shand as 'Chamber Music on Steroids', this is a concert you don't want to miss!
With Emily-Rose Sarkova and Owen Salome at the helm on Bandoneons and vocals, Tango double bass powerhouse Chloe Anne Williamson will be flying in from Queensland, Amy Putt has returned from New Zealand to take her place at the piano with special guests on Violin and Viola.
