Sydney-based tango quintet, Tángalo head to Newcastle’s Unorthodox Church of Groove on Saturday February 7 for a night of original compositions and existing tangos.
Formed in 2011 by Emily-Rose Šarkova and Owen Salomé, Tángalo grew from a desire to create a greater awareness of tango culture in Australia, and the fierce desire to see more tango-dancing to live tango-music. 2013 saw the group tour with Argentine tango singer Fabían Rodríguez and collaborate with Belentango and Tango Butterfly.
Tángalo use Violin, Guitar, Double Bass, Flute, Accordion, Piano and Voices to create a sound that is is beguiling and vividly personal. The dazzling instrumental lines and impassioned vocals reference both the poetic background of tango music, and something considerably more modern.
The Speakeasy Lounge known as the Unorthodox Church of Groove (Located at #3 Tudor Street) hosts sporadic music events in a relaxed easy going atmosphere.
WHEN: Saturday 7 February
WHERE: Newcastle’s Unorthodox Church of Groove (3 Tudor Street)
