  • About This Album

    The Tango Project was developed as an orquesta típica of sorts, like those that graced cabarets and theaters of Buenos Aires in the 1920s and ‘30s. The group’s first effort, from 1982, became the best-selling classical album of its day, dubbed “the freshest release of the year” by the Christian Science Monitor.
