The quintet ‘La Bordona’ embodies a celebration, a ritual steeped in the spirit of the legendary tango violinist and composer Emilio Balcarce. Comprising musicians hailing from Argentina, France, Belgium, and The Netherlands, this ensemble convenes sporadically with a singular goal: to revel in tango within an informal and relaxed setting. The exquisite interplay among the five soloists extends a heartfelt invitation to both listen and dance, always fueled by joy rather than nostalgia. Their journey as a group began in 2001, marked by their debut at the inaugural Buenos Aires Tango Festival held at the Palais Chaillot National Theater, where they enlivened milongas in the foyer. Since then, their distinctively tasteful and artful sound has resonated in various milongas across Argentina and Europe.
