"Cinco Esquinas" Quintet – Tango Argentino

            Cinco Esquinas Quintet was formed in Argentina in 2005. Since then, their goal has been achieving maximum performance quality, understanding tango not only as a dancing genre, but also one to be heard. Hence, the arrangements and compositions are thought based on the musical and the brilliancy of the whole group as well as of each performer. The repertory includes a diversity of styles (including: Alfredo Gobbi, Horacio Salgán and Astor Piazzola).

            The Quintet has performed in numerous milongas of Buenos Aires City and in the interior of Argentina, as well as in theatres and auditoriums; and due to their ample repertory, they have achieved the recognition of the public in general, both listeners and dancers. Among other places, they have performed in the provinces of Santa Cruz, Tucumán, Formosa, Misiones, Chaco and in inner cities of Buenos Aires province, always in music festivals. They have shared stage with figures as Raúl Lavié, María Graña, Guillermo Fernández, Ariel Ardit, Andrés Linetzky and other recognised tango musicians. Apart from that, they have played in Buenos Aires main auditoriums: Sanata Bar, Catedral del Tango, Casa de la Cultura and Torquato Tasso, among others. They’ve participated on TV shows ("Por Siempre Tango") and on radio programs ("2 x Guaita" and "Zapatitos de Raso", both on the "La 2 x 4" station, FM 92.7, the tango station of Buenos Aires City, www.la2x4.gov.ar ).
