05 May Getting to Know: TWENTY TANGO ORCHESTRAS
Getting to Know: Twenty Tango Orchestras
Author – David Thomas – published this book in the UK but as tango is universal it should appeal to all us tango addicts.
Be Transported back to the Golden Age of Tango and bring back to life the best loved orchestras of then and now.
Who were the orchestra leaders, the musicians, and the singers that brought us this unique sound and what clues did they leave for us to recognise them?
You are invited inside for a closer embrace with the orchestras and to enrich your own personal tango journey.
From a review by one of our MPG Committee members
““It’s good to know where these people come from, they often had hard lives, a lot of them worked as decorators (funny hey!) prior to embarking on tango compositions and gigs. I think it helps us understand the energy and stories they put in their music.
