Alturas are a Sydney-based quintet specialising in the performance of contemporary tango with distinct jazz influences.
With a constantly expanding repertoire, Alturas push boundaries with unique reworkings of traditional tangos, along with stunning arrangements of Piazzolla, Ziegler, Egozcue and contemporary composers including several original pieces.
Last concert for the year: 13th December at Foundry 616.
Pieces by Piazzolla, Ziegler, a Venezuelan piece by Edward Simon, a piece composed by Argentina's Camerata Portena, a Brazilian Choro and Bordel from Histoire du Tango. Also plenty of tango/jazz and a couple of traditional tangos.
Come and join us for a fantastic evening!
