About Amores Tangos

With the usual powerful and joyful energy they bring on the stage, Amores Tangos resume music’s festive and cheerful side, recovering the tradition of old bands that went over different rhythms. Combining tango, milonga, candombe, latin american music, cumbia and jazz, and leaving place for play and improvisation, the group transcended the limits of Tango with its unique sound and original staging.

Their CDs Orquesta de Carnaval (2011), Altamar (2013) and Fronterabierta (2017) were nominated for the Carlos Gardel awards –the most important argentinian music industry award-. They are currently presenting their DVD Amores Tangos VIVO (2014), filmed at the Teatro Municipal Colon of Mar del Plata, winner of Best Documentary on 1st Mar del Plata Film Festival.

The Amores experience is the festivity and joy of their shows, the communion between musicians and an audience that is also star of the show.

They performed in many cities in Argentina, and around the globe, Spain, Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, just to mention
