From Sydney to Buenos Aires and back again, join the TangoOz 2016 orchestra one year on, under the direction of Maggie Ferguson, as they reunite for one last tango in the intimate atmosphere of the Camelot Lounge. Some of the most beautiful, nostalgic and seductive music ever composed can be found in Argentine tango. Get ready for a one-off night of live music and dancing as TangoOz 2016 take you on a journey through all of the genre’s most renowned styles and composers in the grandeur of a full ‘orquesta típica’, culminating in the official launch of their first EP, recorded in Buenos Aires in July 2016.
In July 2016, twenty young Australian musicians, students of the violin and bandoneón tango teacher Maggie Ferguson, travelled to Buenos Aires, under the facilitation of Sydney Youth Orchestras, for an intensive, immersive tango experience. This was by invitation of Ignacio Varchausky, double bassist for Orquesta El Arranque, 2009 Latin Grammy Award winning producer, and founder of the Orquesta Escuela de Tango Emilio Balcarce, with whose tutors and musicians TangoOz studied, under the direction of legendary bandoneón player Maestro Víctor Lavallén.
TangoOz played in some of the city’s finest venues, including a reception at the Australian Embassy Residence in Buenos Aires, a milonga at the famous La Viruta to a standing ovation and a live midnight performance on BA’s tango radio station La2x4 FM. Upon returning, this core group of musicians have performed at venues across Sydney including The Basement in August 2016 and Sydney Conservatorium of Music in December 2016, as well as on board the Queen Elizabeth 2 ocean liner in February 2017 as the Australian Tango Academy orchestra of SYO. Upcoming engagements in 2017 include performances at the NSW Art Gallery in August and at City Recital Hall in October. Their performance of Piazzolla's ‘Libertango’ from 2012 has recently reached 2 million views on YouTube!
This EP was recorded in the Estudio Doctor F. and was produced by Ignacio Varchsuasky, to whom TangoOz extends its warmest thanks. It is a testament to the far-reaching power of tango and the value of cultural exchange.
