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.    

Alturas will release their second CD "sin palabras" in May 2015.

This CD features jazzy interpretations of tango with soaring sax and piano solos combined with blissful violin, viola, flute and alto flute backed up by strong bass lines.  Includes works from Venezuela and Brazil as well as many Argentinean classics which all have subtle references to tango.

We are thrilled to announce our May tour dates for our CD launch.
