Seductive, passionate music from the heartland of tango, Alturas presents a mixture of traditional and modern jazz-infused tangos.
Inspired by the music of Argentina, ‘Alturas’ combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz-inspired solos.
Performing as a group since 2009, Alturas started as a duo with Gaye Thomas - flute and Jane Andino - piano. It has over the years grown to become a quintet, performing throughout Eastern Australia.
With acclaimed performances for the National Argentine Day celebrations in Canberra, at the request of the Argentinean Embassy, their debut CD, Café con Tango includes works by Astor Piazzolla, Pablo Ziegler, Fernando Egozcue, as well as traditional tangos and some original tango-inspired pieces.
Alturas regularly perform to sellout audiences so be sure to book ahead for this one!
Gaye Thomas: flute/bandoneon
Greg Gibson: sax/clarinet
Inge Courtney-Haentjes: violin/viola
Jane Andino: piano
Stan Valacos: double bass/guitar
