Tango in the Square: Tangonero – Dj, Dance Lesson with Bay Area Argentine Tango Association.
With members from Russia, Malaysia, and the US, Tangonero is a San Francisco 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, lust and sorrow, their performance captures the fire of the dance and the essence of a culture.
Tangonero was awarded the CMC Shenson Award for their original stage production Malena, in collaboration with Argentine vocalist Claudio Ortega and dancers Count Glover and Chelsea Eng. They have performed at numerous festivals including Portland ValenTango, San Francisco Tango Xchange, Boston Tango Festival, Cotati Accordion Festival, and have shared the stage with Grammy Artists Jeremy Cohen and Pablo Aslan. In 2009 they released their first album, La Yumba, and their most recent album Mala Junta was released in the Fall of 2015. They continue to perform throughout the United States in both dance and concert halls.
