Tango cabaret * DUO RANAS - ARGENTINE TANGO MUSIC CONCERT * Class and Social Dance

Before the show there will be a beginners Tango class from 7pm - 8pm, come and learn your first steps and then try them out on the dance floor.

Tonight come and step into the world of Tango Cabaret, where passion ignites the dance floor. Our show blends traditional Argentine Tango with contemporary flair, an unforgettable night of Tango music brought to you by DUO RANAS as part of their 30th European tour. You can dance or simply steep in the music of these exemplary musicians.

Leandro Schnaider (bandoneón) and Pablo Schiaffino (piano) met over 20 years ago in the Mythical Cafe Tortoni in Buenos Aires. In 2007 they named themselves DUO RANAS and released their 1st CD (Ranas Dúo Porteño de Tango). This led to them touring in Europe and Southern Korea.

They have listened to and analysed the old recordings of the late great Tango orchestras of the early 20th century and distilled their music, inspired by this, two CDs (“El Limonero Real” and “Júpiter”) were released. Their own compositions are also recorded on their fourth Album “Tata” including a first foray into Argentine folk music with an original Chacarera.

This is DUO RANAS third visit to Ireland, last year they played in the Mermaid Arts Centre and at Flor de Milonga in Bray. This year we are bringing them to Wexford so that a wider audience should get to hear these two excellent musicians play. They will play a range of works from the Tango classics, an original Chacarera as well as compositions from Piazzola.
