Romulo Larrea Tango Ensemble

The Ensemble tirelessly explores the pulsating Tango world and has distinguished itself as an outstanding ambassador of the genre in international cultural circles. The Ensemble's concert concepts and recordings, which form the Un siglo de Tango collection, are recognized internationally. The Ensemble interprets a rich repertoire and prolongs the tradition of the Buenos Aires tango orchestras, in Québec, in Canada and abroad.

Formed in 1990 by bandoneon player Romulo Larrea, the septet brings together seasoned and young musicians, residents of Quebec. They are graduated from different institutions and completed several courses out of the country with renowned masters in their respective disciplines. These master classes together with the work accomplished under the direction of Maestro Romulo Larrea has led to a dedication and discipline that have allowed the Ensemble to develop a unique approach to the genre, which has become a benchmark for aficionados, both novices and experts alike.
