About the band:

With a sound reminiscent of icons Carlos Gardel and Jose Razzano and a modern playfulness that is uniquely their own, Duo Fuertes - Varnerin elevate tango to a new level of relatability and charm that has been missing since the days of old. Agustin Fuertes (vocals & guitarron) and Ariel Varnerin (vocals & guitar) will draw you in with their infectious harmonies, danceable rhythms and old world style. They have been performing at milongas and festivals in Buenos Aires since 2003 and have toured the European tango circuit for the past five years. August 2016 marks their debut in the US.
