La Busca – Tango ensemble featuring Juan Veron de Astrada.
July 16 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
La Busca’s latest performance is at the inimitable world/folk/bohemian/caberet bar Open Studio. At the top of Ruckus Hill in Northcote’s live music precinct, beneath the crepes sign you will find these talented souls in the window, framed by red velvet.
La Busca is the passionate sound of an all female tango ensemble, backing the enigmatic Argentinean singer, Juan Veron de Astrada, who hails from the thriving Milonga scene of Buenos Aires. The sextet are a danceable, orchestral tango experience who play traditional, contemporary and Australian tangos.. “Gorgeous, sparkling and ebullient tangos from the 1930s Golden Era, a dash of Piazzolla, lyrical and nostalgic Porteño vocals; all eruditely and expertly executed. A hush fell over the audience in the milonga triste” – Andrew James, pianist/founder, Colectivo29, Tango Collusion Trio.
The ensemble specialize in traditional tangos from early 20th century Argentina plus contemporary Australian Tango compositions.
La Busca will transport a time of grand romance and passionate eloquence to the bars of modern day Melbourne.
The checkered tables with their crepes and drinks condense to make room for tango’s true love, the dancers, but La Busca welcome the chance to win over tango fans old and new, including the curious and the undecided. Treat yourself to a sumptuous evening of delight! Be won!
