Tango in the Square - Redwood Tango Ensemble
The Redwood Tango Ensemble is an energetic tango sextet from San Francisco. The ensemble plays traditional Argentine tango with transcriptions and arrangements of the classic “golden era” orchestras of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, primarily working in the styles of Troilo, Di Sarli, D’Arienzo, and Pugliese. The group also ventures into the concert pieces and nuevo-tango of Astor Piazzolla, Sexteto Mayor, and modern ensembles around the world. Their signature is a growing repertoire of original compositions written in the style of the classic orchestras, entirely danceable, but singular and alive.
