Chamber Ensemble Camarada presents Tango Obsession at CSUSM

Camarada, San Diego’s premiere chamber ensemble, presents a sizzling array of tango music and dance on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at Cal State San Marcos.

The concert will feature Raul Juarena’s tango interpretations, which are enriched by influences of jazz, and spontaneous improvisations that fascinate a new generation of listeners. Juarena, a master of the button accordion known as the bandoneon, earned praise from Argentinian nuevo tango icon Astor Piazzolla.

Featured dancers will be Tango Alma, a masterful tango team with an ability to flow from sensuality to comedy and sassiness while keeping faithful to the magical embrace that makes tango the world’s most expressive dance.

Camarada musicians will include CSUSM faculty pianist Dana Burnett, flutist Beth Ross Buckley and string players David Buckley and Jeff Pekarek. Music will include new compositions by Jaurena and arrangements and original works by Piazzolla.
