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.

Live muisc by: Mermelda, The Seattle Tango Jam

 

About the band:

Mermelada (formerly The Seattle Tango Jam) started a few years ago as an opportunity for musicians to play tango music without the pressure of having to audition into a professional ensemble. Mermelada has grown from a nucleus of 4-6 musicians into a true tango orchestra of 10 musicians, and has graduated from informal jamming to playing professional arrangements. We strive to produce an authentic sound by copying the styles of the Golden Age orchestras.  Because most of us happen to also be dancers, we play the music as we would want to dance to it, with clear rhythms and lyrical melodies.
