Tango Paradiso are considered one of Australia’s best and most established tango orchestras, bringing the electric energy and smouldering passion of tango alive. 

Born in the bordellos of Buenos Aires at the turn of last century, the dance of tango is considered by some to be somewhat reminiscent of ‘vertical sex’. The music that inspires the dance plays the field between the harmonic complexities of jazz, the technical brilliance of classical music to finish finally in the silky sensuality of Piazzolla’s great tango tunes.

With the acclaimed South American pianist Daniel Rojas (winner of this month’s Limelight magazine CD of the month)  astounding Slav violinists Moshlo and Romano Crivici, ex principal flute with the Australian Opera, Carla Thackrah and talented bassist Bella Brown, the band is a mix of the best and wildest musical temperaments on offer!

This night they’re joined by the wonderful voice of Nadia Piave, a singer well know to ABC radio listeners with a repertoire ranging from renaissance song through to cabaret and world music.

The band has performed and recorded in Buenos Aires, the home of tango, as well as having played to acclaim at many world music and tango festivals around Australia and is a regular at the Woodford Folk Festival.

Try out your tango moves or just watch the experts on the floor. Either way you’re in for a night of sensual pleasure.
