Description

Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet:

Since 2009 "Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet" has developed their own unique style of tango music reflecting both innovation and tradition.Inspired by the golden age tango orchestras, the ensemble managed to reach an evolutionary synthesis of traditional tango and contemporary feeling.

On stage the communication between the four musicians is allowing, expressive, playful and tight. They flirt with a chamber musical expression without ever leaving the unpredictable spontaneousness within popular music and improvisation. Various grooves and different ornaments reveal the members personal playing styles.

Athens Tango Project:
Athens Tango Project brings Argentine tango music in its pure form, while also collaborating with local North American musicians to create its own sound. Athens Tango Project started in Athens, Georgia, when Laura Camacho, a native of Argentina, started playing tango with local jazz musicians and international classical graduate students from The University of Georgia that wanted to learn the style. Laura has shared the stage with artists like Mariano Mores and Sexteto Mayor. Athens Tango Project has performed throughout the United States, and was featured in local Ted Talks, NPR, as well as the documentary Athens Rising, by James Preston, for which they arranged a cover of an R.E.M. song into a tango, and wrote original music. Some of the group’s collaborations include members of Drive-By Truckers, Pylon, and The Olivia Tremor Control.
