> > La Orquesta Típica Andariega is now arranging its 4th European Tour in May/June 2015.
> > I hereby send you a presentation of the orchestra offering a live performance during this tour.
> > La Orquesta Típica Andariega was created in Buenos Aires September 2009 and is directed by the double bass player Luigi Coviello. The orchestra consists of nine musicians and fulfil with the format for the traditional typical tango orchestra:
> > 3 violins, 3 bandoneons, piano, double bass and a singer. The orchestra has a repertoire"bien milonguero" - as we say in Spanish - which means that it is a music connected intimately to the milonga and good for dancing! It a mix between new arrangements of the most popular tangos and totally new tango compositions that preserve the rhythmic and danceable spirit of the Forties and at the same time add to the new tango movement of 2000.One of its characteristics is the sharply marked pulse of Biagi, the deep groove of Di Sarli and the rich counterpoint of Pugliese where the melody moves from one instrument to another all the time. That gives it a certain humour and good dynamics.The audience enjoys the power in the performance of the group and appreciate the young, energetic style of the music - for dancing as well as for listening.
