The Redwood Tango Ensemble is an energetic tango quintet from San Francisco. The ensemble specializes in traditional tango music with transcriptions and arrangements of the classic "golden era" orchestras of the 30's, 40's and 50's, primarily working in the styles of Troilo, Di Sarli, D'Arienzo, and Pugliese. The group also ventures into the concert pieces and nuevo-tango of Astor Piazzolla, Sexteto Mayor, and modern ensembles around the world. Their signature is a growing repertoire of original compositions written in the style of the classic orchestras, entirely danceable, but singular and alive. 

Redwood Tango was the featured orchestra for Chicago Tango Week 2013, and has performed for milongas in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, Montreal, London, NYC, and dozens of cities in between.  The ensemble keeps an active presence in the bay area tango scene, and also gives musicality workshops and clinics to dance communities and musicians interested in getting deeper into the style and substance of the music.  Redwood Tango has released and toured to support two albums: Joaquin (2012), and Cayetano (2013), with a new album of original tango set to be released in late 2014.
