La Gran Orquesta de Tango del Palicio de Louisa

La Gran Orquesta de Tango del Palacio de Louisa" is a community tango orchestra that exists to encourage the playing of tango dance music. 
We had our first Pop-Up Tango performance on Saturday 7th April 2018 and were delighted to find people enjoyed it. A second performance for the dancers 
of Tango Northampton at Kislingbury on Sunday
30th September 2018 proved that it was possible for us non-professionals to play tangos at a danceable standard.

Anybody with a suitable instrument is welcome to get involved. The arrangements are as simple as possible while bringing out the essential features 
of tango - consistent rhythm, dynamics and wonderful melodies. We are fortunate to have a vocalist who sings in Spanish but would welcome those
who wish to give this a try. 

As an example of an instrumental tango have a look at sheet for "La Payanca" which is based on Juan d'Arienzo's version.
If you can play along with (or accompany) the YouTube clip of "La Payanca" https://youtu.be/e6GjPfRWe08 using this sheet then you do just fine. 
If you need a sheet for a transposing instrument then please get in touch...
