TANGO IS NOT JUST FOR DANCING!

September 26, 2016 Comments Off on TANGO IS NOT JUST FOR DANCING! News, Uncategorized

The word “tango” conjures up images of beautiful women and handsome men, long female legs in mile-high heels kicking out in improbable patterns and curling around their partners’ legs, intense expressions on faces. To learn to dance tango is a commitment and a passion. But don’t be fooled by the dance. You needn’t take a step onto the dance floor to appreciate the beauty of tango music—this is some of the most beautiful music ever written. From the old tango masters to the innovators like Piazzolla, the melodies and instrumentation are haunting. Here in the New York area, we are fortunate to be home to some of the finest tango musicians outside of Argentina.

When Cantaloupe Music Productions was founded 15 years ago, it was to provide an incomparable depth of resources in — not tango — Brazilian music. That is still our principal priority. But about 8 years ago, we were seduced. By tango! Today we work with the best of the best of the tango musicians, and the virtuosity of their playing is astounding.

Please visit some of the tango musicians we represent. They are the best of the best to be found living anywhere outside of their native Argentina.  Then invite tango into your life or event, as we have into ours:

Pedro Giraudo tango ensembles (trio, quartet, and full tango orchestra)
