Racing Club Tango - Quinteto

Racing Club Tango is an Argentine/Dutch group in which a new generation of musicians puts its mark on the tango tradition. Everything Racing Club plays is undoubtedly tango; thrilling, melancholy, rousing and very danceable. They effortlessly interweave elements from Argentine folklore, traditional Latin American music and jazz in their tangos without denying their strong roots in Buenos Aires. Racing Club is “the real thing” or “posta posta” as the porteños say. During each performance their special bond with this music becomes tangible.
