Tango Live Musc in Cardigan: 10 April 2015

The Alejandro Ziegler Quartet began in Buenos Aires in 2007 and the ensemble has a distinct style of tango music, reflecting both innovation and tradition. They play in the style of Di Sarli, Pugliese, Troilo and Gobbi among others. Various grooves and different ornaments reveal the members personal playing styles and on stage the communication between the four musicians is allowing, expressive, playful and tight.

Alejandro Ziegler’s own compositions come alive through surprising arrangements as well as intimate interplay. With their unique mix of tango, improvisation and romantique, they have gained territory all over the world with their special sound. Don’t miss this complete musical experience!
