Ferocious, passionate and resolutely defiant, Rascasuelos is a Buenos Aires-based visionary tango ensemble of eight classically and rock trained musicians and four tango dancers with additional ballet & contemporary training. The band’s signature sound and look is evidence of the member’s unique musical backgrounds, from performing in leading symphonic orchestras, to starring in celebrated Argentinian rock bands, and dancing in leading ballet companies.

While taking inspiration from Astor Piazzolla’s tradition-defying work, Rascasuelos uses its musicians’ diverse musical backgrounds to give tango its 21st Century relevance, alive with the fiery spirit of determination and hope. Adding to the performance is riveting imagery created by Marcelo Lupis and visual storyteller Pix Talarico, nominee of two Latin Grammy Awards and recipient of five MTV Awards.
