Tango Mediterraneo
Drom (85 Avenue A, Manhattan)
7:15pm show

Tango Mediterraneo is a New York City based quartet with emphasis on traditional Argentine Tango melodies of the early 1920’s to 1950’s – Tango’s golden era – inspired by the unique essence of Carlos Gardel, as well as the big tangoorchestras of Juan d’Arienzo, Francisco Canaro, and Aníbal Troilo. Tango Mediterraneo’s repertoire embraces additional inspiration from composer Astor Piazzolla, as well as classical and jazz music arranged with rhythmical, aesthetic components of Argentine Tango.

With the quartet’s core members stemming from the Mediterranean basin, Tango Mediterraneo collaborates with other extremely talented musicians such as Emilio Solla and Christos Rafalides, and performs for tango festivals, shows, social dance salons, and in theater and music scenes throughout the U.S. and Europe.
