Type: Latin American Band
Tango La Luna presents a new sound on the New Zealand music scene - mysterious, seductive arrangements that mix traditional Europeon sounds and instruments with the passion and sense of longing of the Argentine tango.
La Luna appeals to dancers and listeners alike. The quintet plays regular concerts as well as providing live music for milongas - the social evenings of tango dancing and music.
Even though their music draws its inspiration from Argentinian tango in all its forms, sounds of jazz and classical music can be heard in the arrangements, showing how far tango has now moved from its roots in Buenos Aires to truly become "world music".
La Luna's repertoire covers a century of tango, from the early sounds of the Guardia Vieja and the lyricism of the revered master Pugliese to the modern Tango Nuevo , exemplified in the unrelenting sensuality of Piazzolla's famous " Libertango". To this mix La Luna adds classical elements, jazz and latin sounds and improvisation.
La Luna is a totally acoustic ensemble (amplified when required)
ideal for: Tango dance party corporate function, latin american themed event
The Tango La Luna performance can cater for the eye as well as the ear: 2 dancers are normally used for a demonstration: NZ award winning duo David and Nikki Wenborn in a virtuoso display of passionate tango dancing and a package can be negotiated where one hour of dance lessons precedes the performance, so everyone has a chance to dance the tango
