a LoCA Milonga closes the 2022 season with an epic milonga and tango concert with electrotango band Tanghetto live.

This is 21st century tango. Tanghetto was born in 2002 as a bold proposal to modernize tango with new sounds and technologies. The result is a platform to deliver a fresh take on tango to both the traditional dancers and the concert hall audiences. Nominations and awards for prestigious Latin Grammy and Premio Gardel awards followed. Tanghetto plays for full houses everywhere in the world, and has become the electro tango band with the greatest international relevance.

When Alejandra Folguera and Geraldine Freitag set up to support tango through the pandemic, they never expected to get the reception they received. People getting together, sharing music, feeling, frienship in an instant show of pure human connection. As a result of their work, the tango community of dancers, musicians, audience has grown dramatically. "This is addictive" we heard someone heard of the feeling of being embraced in tango. We invite you to join us November 11 at Buena Onda + Empanadas, 724 Haley Street in Santa Barbara. Doors open at 4:30pm. Concert starts at 6:00pm

Tanghetto’s music is pure energy and drive. There is no need to know how to dance tango here: let the music take you, partner or no partner, as it is sure to do. Tango rhythm is a universal language, in the 21st century and beyond.
