Tango Volcano is a London-based tango band launched in 2001. For a decade and as a quintet, the band has wowed festival audiences throughout the country (Cheltenham, Bath, Norwich, Buxton, Lichfield, Aldeburgh, Manchester) and gigged in central London venues (ICA, Bloomsbury Theatre, Union Chapel, Blackheath Halls) as well as recorded their highly-praised album "Catching Fire", and also "Tango Tango" - the sound track to their successful touring show of the same name. This vibrant and virtuosic band plays traditional tangos from the golden era, explosive music by the famous and infamous Astor Piazzolla and a selection of dynamic and funky contemporary tangos. Recognised as being at the cutting edge of the UK tango scene, Tango Volcano has recently regrouped and is gigging again as a quartet.
The band brings together the experience and passion of some of London's top professional musicians with the specialised sound of the bandoneon - the heart-rending voice of the tango.
