Bio

Praised by Songlines Magazine for its «exceptional craftsmanship», Argentine-Norwegian tango band El Muro Tango has thrilled dancers and music lovers throughout Europe and Argentina since 2016. The group is known for its great energy, captivating melancholy and delicate subtleties, conveying the authentic Argentine tango with a fresh and modern harmonic language.

El Muro Tango released its debut album Nostálgico on Galileo Music in 2018 to great reviews in the international press. «Nostálgico is an album that convinces with its wonderfully elaborated arrangements, as well as its sound, committed to the tradition of the old masters, that is so rarely found in today’s tango bands», wrote AMM Magazin (DE). Nettavisen (NO) exclaimed, «It’s no wonder they have been superbly received everywhere – this sounds as strong and as real as one can only wish for.»

Following the band’s successful debut at a sold-out Royal Concertgebouw in 2019, they have been invited to major European tango and jazz festivals such as Innsbruck Tango Festival and Jazzkaar. El Muro Tango is currently working on their second studio album featuring Latin Grammy-nominated singer Omar Mollo, to be released in 2022.
