I have been playing with Los Portenos, traditional tango band, now for about a year. It is complex and beautiful music and I have had to learn many of the songs in several keys to accommodate singers and such. I feel like I am just beginning to understand the feel of the music and I am thriving with the camaraderie of being in a band again. Los Portenos is lead by the lovely Michelle Cormier and consists of varying combinations of two violins, guitar, gitarone, piano, myself on accordion and a singer. This weekend we play for a Milonga – a tradional tango dance event.
