Tango-Ar Orchestra


“Tango-Ar Orchestra hosts professional musicians with years of experience and passion for tango.“


Juanjo Passo (Bandoneon & musical director)

Irina Binder ( Violin)

Per Tidstrand ( Cello)

Viktor Auregard (Contrabass)

Garik Binder (Piano)

The orchestra’s music is the tango from Rio de la Plata, a repertoire with a great variety from the 1940’s and -50’s up to this date. Well-known composers like Villoldo, Canaro, Fresedo, Di Sarli, Troilo, Pugliese and Piazzolla, to mention a few, are the part of this repertoire.

The music is primarily played for dancing; for people to meet in the embrace of the tango and to be carried away by the music. But with this wide range of music, the programme is also suitable for concert performances.

The orchestra has been performing together as Orquesta Tangarte  – Orquesta de Tango – since 1999.

During the years they performed at various festivals in Scandinavia, parts of Europe and South America. Main events include the World Tango Summits (Cumbre Mundial del Tango) in Rosario/Argentina (2001), Sevilla/Spain (2005), Valparaiso/Chile (2007), Bariloche/Argentina (2009) and Seinäjoki /Finland (2011) as well as Tarbes Tango Festival/France (2005), Ankara TangoFestival, Amgigos del Tango Tampere Finland, CITA Buenos Aires (2009), F.I.T.A. ’10 and ’11 Paris/France, Salamanca, Granada and Almería in Spain, Tango del Norte and Copenhagen Jazz Festival in Copenhagen/Denmark, Loewesaal Berlin/Germany, Faces Etno Festival and Tyrväntö Tango Festival/Finland, Tango on ICEland Reykjavik/Iceland. TV appearances in TV NDR/Germany, TV4 Sweden.

The orchesta regularly invite great guest musicians, singers and dancers such as bandoneon players Luis Stazo (Sexteto Mayor), Juan Jose Mosalini, Victor Villena, Carlos Buono, Carlos Quilici, Mercedes Krapovickas, Paolo Russo, Santiago Cimadevilla, Claudio Constantini and Marcelo Mercadante, pianists Cristian Zárate, Roger Helou and Juan Esteban Cuacci, guitarist Leonardo Sanchez, bass player Ignacio Varchausky and singers Elisabeth Figueroa and Patricia Nora.

The latest record is “Rumores de orquesta” (monophon Sweden 2012). As Tangarte the orchestra has previously recorded three CDs – ”Lo que vendrá” (monophon Sweden, 2007), ”Ecos de Tango” (EDT/monophon Sweden, 2004) and ”Danzarin” (Skåneton/Hi-hat records).

Nayla Danchuk (Singer) joined Tango-Ar Orchestra in 2015 to perform in the UK and Europe.
