Argentine Tango Show: Alejandro Ziegler Quartet

Oct 26, 2018
Casa Argentina de Houston / Zilkha Hall

Casa Argentina de Houston brings back the acclaimed Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet for an amazing Argentine tango show. The presentation will also feature tango dancers Claudio Otero & Lauren Woods bringing the sensual and passionate tango from Buenos Aires as well as the powerful “gaucho” dance and whirling “boleadoras”.

Since 2008, "Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet" has developed its own unique style of tango music reflecting both innovation and tradition. Inspired by the golden age tango orchestras, the ensemble creates an evolutionary synthesis of traditional tango and contemporary feeling.

Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet members are: Alejandro Ziegler (piano) (Argentina), Javier Stromann (bandoneón) (Argentina), John Cooper (violin) (USA) & Laura Camacho (upright bass) (Argentina).

With their special sound, a unique mix of tango, improvisation and romanticism, the musicians of the Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet have gained recognition all over the world. Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet performs in Buenos Aires on a regular basis. The quartet has embarked on 11 extensive world tours, 6 European Tours (175 concerts in 84 cities), and 5 North American Tours (109 concerts in 77 cities).

Powered by the sounds of tango and the rhythm of the streets of Buenos Aires, Alejandro Ziegler Quartet features musical masterpieces that are not to be missed!
