Description

Guardia Vieja and Austin Urban Tango bring to you a unique Argentine Tango Experience with El Cachivache!

El Cachivache Quinteto is currently one of the most popular tango groups and is widely recognized on the world music circuit. Sometimes called 'Tango Punk' ', the group is characterized by its undeniably creative, original, and very “danceable '' style.

Join us on September 27, 2018 for a special debut concert with El Cachivache! This is an exclusive show and El Cachivache's debut in Texas. Whether you are new to Tango or a seasoned social dancer, we hope to inspire you with this unique event.

El Cachivache will be playing two sets and in the first we invite you to listen to their unique Tango Punk style and watch as Ciko (Cigdem Tanik) and Mauro Peralta perform. Towards the end of this first set and for the duration of the second, we invite social dancers to join the band in expressing their own creativity. Throughout the night, there will also be a DJ to keep you dancing, when the band is not playing.

El Cachivache will also be offering a special Master Class in advance of the show on Wednesday, Septmeber 26th. The Master Class will provide a brief history and evolution of tango music and where El Cachivache fits in today. This class does not require any dance experience and is open to dancers and non-dancers, alike. The class is 1.5 hours in duration, starts at 7pm and will be held at 1906 W. Koening Lane, Austin, TX 78756.

We are also extremely fortunate and excited to have Ciko (Cigdem Tanik) in town from NYC! She will be spending an extended period of time in Austin, so please feel free to reach out to us to schedule privates (pooja@guardiaviejaatx.com). In addition to privates, Ciko and Mauro will be partnering to offer three workshops on Friday, September 28th and Saturday, September 29th. Topics to be announced soon!
