Special Performance featuring the Alejandro Ziegler Cuarteto
Saturday February 24, 2018 8pm to Midnight
Alejandro Ziegler Cuarteto has developed its own danceable style based on the music of the Golden Age tango orchestras. The ensemble recreates the idea of the “Orquesta Tipica”, with a modern sound. Since 2007, the Cuarteto has toured the US and Europe, gaining worldwide recognition for their unique, exciting and danceable sound.
The performance at Las Puertas will begin with a few of Alejandro’s original tangos and the remainder will be the best of the Golden Era.
$15 admission at the door.
