About CT Tango Ensemble:
Originally started as a Duo in 1995, the Cape Town Tango Ensemble has grown in size and stature. The group consists of the core Quartet of Accordeon/Bandoneon, Violin, Piano and Double Bass, which is extended on occasion by guest artists on guitar, drums, African percussion, Saxophone and even cello, depending on the project. James Grace, Peter Narun, Melanie Scholtz, Franc Paco, Willie van Zijl and Daniel Shout are just a few of the musicians who form part of a continuous process of collaboration and re-invention of the tango genre. They have established themselves as the leading exponents of Tango Music in South Africa and on the African continent, having released 3 CDs to date, with a SAMA (South African Music Award) Nomination to their credit.
They have performed at all the major festivals in South Africa, including the KKNK, the National Arts Festival, and Aardklop. There music has been used in films (“Tango Club”, “Viz a vie”) and on Television (“Backstage” (e.tv), Kyknet, Ontbytsake, Fleur du Cap Award Ceremony, etc.) They successfully bridge the gap between classical and contemporary, having performed at highly prominent Classical Music events such as the Cape Town Concert Series, MTN Classical Soiree, and a highly prestigious international debut at the Leipzig Gewandhaus in Germany. They perform for live Tango dancing, having toured Tango Clubs in Germany and Singapore and have even been included in the line-up of the Cape Town International World Music Festival, making them one of South Africa’s most versatile ensembles.
