About the band:

Since 1999 Tangoheart has been the premier tango ensemble in the Northwest,  The ensemble is a classic, authentic orquesta typica which contains a piano, contrabajo, violins, and the bandoneon, the Argentine instrument with its emblematic tango sound.

The group is led by Port Townsend’s Bertram Levy, who has spent the last quarter century immersed in the Argentine tango. Since 2005, he has spent much of his time studying the bandoneon in Buenos Aires where he studies at the Conservatorio Manuel de Falla with the great Rodolfo Daluisio and from where he brings back fresh material for the group.  The group’s driving bass lines belong to jazz arranger, performer and longtime tanguero  Andy Carr on the piano and the great Todd Gowers, Seattle’s bassist for all seasons.  The string section includes world music specialist Ruthie Dornfeld on first violin and Seattle Symphony’s emeritus violist Dorothy Shapiro on second. 

Tangoheart's dance program includes tangos, waltzes and milongas ranging from the guardia viejo to the modern period.. Individual  tandas are devoted to the particular  styles and arrangements from classic composers such as Canaro, D'Arienzo,.DiSarli, Troilo, and Pugliese.
