Sexteto Milonguero formed in 2007 with the simple desire to make a dance repertoire, usually played in the milongas, emphasizing the 40s, and looking, despite the excellent versions heard for years, a personal sound of the band.
Their only intention? … To continue the function of those great bands, not to let the tango move away from the neighborhood, the dancers, the popular, the milongas.
The style of the group has a beginning, in essence, danceable. And over the years, also because of the diversity of places where they have been presented in recent years, such as theaters or festivals worldwide, they have added to their extensive repertoire a variety of songs that can be called for concerts only. Own songs, songs of Argentine folklore, etc..
This has allowed them to show and merge the different influences that each one of the members of the sextet carries with him or her, such as: Argentina’s popular music, jazz, classical, rock, and current contemporary influences.
With 10 years of experience, Sexteto Milonguero played milongas, theaters and festivals throughout Argentina, made 2 tours in Latin America and 9 European tours covering more than 20 countries, and many cities plus Canada, Singapore and China.
