Sexteto Obsesión Tango

The tango sextet, also known as the „sexteto típico“, has been considered one of the most brilliant and compact tango formations since 1916. Up to this day, this musical ensemble never ceases to amaze its audiences with its incredible richness of tone although being more flexible than an Orquesta Típica and more polyphonic than a quartet. „Sexteto Obsesión Tango“ is a sextet, which makes use of this quality of sound as well as the pulsating power that is so typical of tango music. Six professional Berlin tangueros present their tango which they have been living and learning in places such as Buenos Aires. Not only do they fascinate their audiences with the joy and precision of their playing, but also the dedication which they show to the culture and music of tango.

The sextet dedicates itself not only to traditional but also modern 21st century interpretations of tango. This produces a varied and exciting mixture of tango classics and less known repertoire.

The „Sexteto Obsesión Tango“ first came together in Berlin in the autumn of 2012 to stage the Tango-Dinner-Show „Obsesión Tango“. In the course of the three months show, they thrilled the tango- and music lovers of Berlin and attracted crowds from all over of Germany.

In 2009 UNESCO declared Tango an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. By means of its obsesión for this music and culture, the sextet is sure to open more doors and reach even more tango lovers.
