Last month Joy and I saw “Tango Fire”, a touring dance show from Argentina. I’ve been derelict in posting about it because, to be honest, we didn’t really enjoy the show that much. The dancers seemed fairly talented, but each number seemed like the same thing again and again. They had a singer who was terribly cheesy and not particularly good. Live music for the show was provided by the band Quatrotango, and they were undoubtedly the best part of the show. In the second half they had a few pieces they performed alone without any dancers, which were very good. The bandoneon (kind of like an accordion, but not exactly) player in particular was excellent. I certainly wouldn’t recommend the show as a whole, but I imagine that catching the band on its own would provide a very good concert.
