Camarada presents

The Essence of Tango

a powerful journey of tango through time

Tango at its roots is sensuous, rhythmic, and passionate. Join Camarada for an evening to explore the wide range of tango from the 1900’s all the way to an exciting world premiere by Andrés Martín.

Tango is a rich mix of urban culture forged with the influence of immigrant history. Over time this music made its way from the streets of Buenos Aires to the concert halls across the world. The Essence of Tango is a curated time-travel experience highlighting several famous tango composers: Pugliese, Paulos, Gardel, Sosa, Troilo, Mores, and the unequivocal Astor Piazzolla.
