“Sassy, talented and oh so hot right now” – 2013 M.I.A. Fesitval.

 

Tángalo is a vibrant modern Tango quintet based in Sydney, Australia. Combining the emotion of golden-age tango with a contemporary aesthetic, Tángalo’s music is exquisite for dancers and listeners alike.

 

Join Tángalo in their farewell of Australia before they head to study Tango in Buenos Aires. Music full of passion and pain, flirtation and fire, nostalgia and nonsense, the Tango is the music of emotion, of experience and of the people. Join Tángalo as they take you on a journey from the barrios of Buenos Aires to the concert-halls and nightclubs of high-society, joining them will be the brilliant local Brisbane ensemble The Mendoza Quartet, showcasing the best old and new Tango music for your delight.

 

Tángalo will be performing their signature mix of old and new music, blending the emotion of golden-age tango with a contemporary aesthetic. Performing both traditional Argentine tango, and their original compositions, in elegant costume, Tángalo creates a performance that is exquisite for both dancers and listeners. 

 

Formed with a fierce desire to inspire and revitalise Sydney’s tango dance culture, Tángalo is the brainchild of Emily-Rose Šarkova and Owen Salomé. Since their debut performance of July 2011, Tángalo has fast become a favourite on the Australian Tango scene, performing for events such as The National Folk Festival, Made in Argentina Festival, Tango in the Spring and B.A.S.H. They have also performed in prestigious Sydney music venues such as The Basement, Blue Beat and created the very popular Tango evenings at the Camelot Lounge. In 2013 Tángalo collaborated with Argentine Singer Fabian Rodriguez in a string of concerts and a tour along with dancers Quique Miller and Belen Silva. In 2014 Tángalo were the winners of the Infinite Song Contest at the National Folk Festival in Canberra, and are the recipients of a JUMP mentorship from the Australia Council for the Arts which will see them journey to Buenos Aires to learn and collaborate with the tango maestros.
