Mendoza Tango Quartet
Mendoza Tango Quartet – Argentinian Tango
Join the Mendoza Tango Quartet for a night of Argentinian tango music – music full of passion and pain, flirtation and fire, nostalgia and nonsense. Featuring Argentinian-born singer Solange Lipcin backed by a quartet of virtuosic instrumentalists, the ensemble has quickly gained a reputation as one of Australia’s leading tango bands. Mutual lovers of Argentinian music, dance and wine, their name, Mendoza is inspired by the largest wine-producing region in Latin America. Equally at home performing concerts of nuevo tango music as they are playing golden age tango classics for milongueros to dance to, the Mendoza Tango Quartet seeks to infuse their performances with a spicy passionate flavour.
Mendoza Quartet will be supported by Melbourne tango musicians Andrew James (piano) and Paloma Bica (violin), playing a short set of tangos from the 1920s and tangos written after 2001.
