Description

The London Tango 4tet

The London Tango Quartet is the small lineup of the Orchestra which is the largest tango group in the UK, a real ‘orquestra tipica’ uniting leading UK tango musicians with players from Argentina. The orchestra was founded in 2009 by Caroline Pearsall and is first of its kind in the UK.

The quartet performs music from the rich repertoire of tango, old and new, sharing its love of tango music, and promoting Argentine culture in the UK through concerts, dances (milongas), workshops and cultural exchanges with tango musicians from Europe and Argentina. Their performances so far include the Purcell Room in the South Bank Centre, Reading and Cheltenham Tango Festivals, Flipside Festival, Helmsley Arts Centre, St James Church in Piccadilly, Ignite Concert Series at the Royal Albert Hall, the City of London Festival, Union Chapel, The Forge, Lets Tango UK and the Halle Tango Festival in Germany. They were part of a tango documentary filmed by the BBC in 2012 and several members recently appeared on the ITV series Mr Selfridge II. They will be playing in Rhosygilwen Music and Arts Venue in Pembrokeshire later this year.
