Tangos for Angels and Demons

Join The Tango Siempre septet for a retrospective of the ensemble's 20 years of repertoire and a showcase of new directions for tango music.

The Tango Siempre septet recreates the intense and passionate sound of the great Argentinian orchestras of tango’s golden age and the ensembles for which Piazzolla wrote some of his greatest works.

Soprano Ann Liebeck performs some of the Argentine composer's most emotional ballads and arias.

The group showcases authentic traditional tangos, the nuevo tango of Piazzolla, and contemporary works by Tango Siempre.

This event is part of Latin Rediscovery’s Havana Buenos Aires Latin Classical Music Festival.

Here is the tango: raw, intoxicating, speaking with its true voice
