QuinTango

After standing ovations at the White House, Kennedy Center, jazz clubs in Costa Rica and Buenos Aires and concert venues across three continents, QuinTango brings Argentine tango back to Blues Alley in a show featuring their own arrangements of Astor Piazzolla, Julian Plaza, and Leonard Cohen and original music by the band’s Grammy-nominated composer Emmanuel Trifilio and Austin-based singer/songwriter Ali Cook. The rhythm section is led by Maestro Trifilio, QuinTango’s Argentine bandoneon player, with bassist Ali Cook and pianist Julie Huang Tucker. The violin section is anchored by Regino Madrid, whose day job is the National Symphony Orchestra, and rounded out by founder/violinist Joan Singer, the resident storyteller and MC. With vocals by singer/songwriter Ali Cook, these five musicians conjure a spellbinding emotional energy. If an iconic Georgetown jazz club rocking a Buenos Aires experience with passion and virtuosity appeals, get your tickets now. Last year’s show (also on October 9!) sold out. “For haunting melody, rhythm that makes every part of your anatomy move, and a feeling of warmth and enthusiasm, QuinTango is downright wonderful." - Robert Jones, Spoleto Critic, The Charleston Post and Courier “If you’re looking for an authentic tango music experience right here in DC, you just found it—QuinTango’s your ticket.” --Ken Avis, DC producer, bandleader.

Winner of 5 WAMMIEs including the 2023 award for Best Latin Artist/Group, QuinTango has produced seven CDs, undertaken 11 international tours, and performed for hundreds of audiences across 29 states. QuinTango is also committed to building community through their work with schools, community centers, half-way houses, hospitals, senior centers, homeless shelters, the U.S. State Department, and local cultural offices throughout the world. Powered by the desire to make a difference with their tangos, QuinTango is an experience that outlasts the performance itself.
