Live tango music stirs the soul and takes the dance experience to a whole new level.
Especially when that music is provided by the Bay Area Tango group, Seth Asarnow y su Sexteto Tipico.

One of the most popular orchestras in San Francisco, the sextet endeavors to reproduce the sound and style of tango orchestras of the 1930’s to 1950’s – the Golden Age of Tango. Seth, considered one of the best bandoneon players in the country, is working to preserve this unique style of music in its original form. “These days very few musicians have the ability or desire to play in this style,” he points out.

 Seth’s sextet is like hearing a recording of an orchestra from the Golden Age of Tango – only better, because it’s live! They give great attention to the polyrhythmic nuances of classic tango music. Embellishments are not just for the dancers – tango music has its own vocabulary of embellishments, and Seth’s group nails them, making the music a pleasure to dance to.” Mark Northcross, Mill Valley

In 2012, Seth Asarnow y su Sexteto Tipico joined forces with Alma del Tango.  Seth’s dream is to expand the sextet to an Orquesta Tipica which usually has 10-12 musicians including a string section, three or more bandoneons, piano and bass. To help keep the music of the Golden Age of Tango playing, support Seth Asarnow y su Sexteto Tipico.
