Featuring members of Tango Siempre, the UK's leading tango quartet, together with the Sigamos String Quartet, a group which specializes in collaborations with world music and jazz artists - Orquesta Tangazo recreates thesound of the great Argentinean orchestras of tango's golden age in the 30's, 40's and 50's, bringing together some of the US leading exponents of tango, contemporary and world music to perform tradititional, nuevo and contemporary tango music with verve and passion. Orquesta Tangazo is a project conceived by UK bandoneonist Julian Rowlands.

'Their playing has the verve and gutwrenching rhythmic drive associated with the
greatest Argentinian bands …' Financial Times - Tango Siempre

'…the well-tempered, note-perfect string quartet shifted through romance, irony and despair on the point of a pin… they impressively integrated classical textures with jazz delivery.' Financial Times - Sigamos String Quartet
