Los Tangueros’ singular nuevo tango sound is cool and impassioned, sensuous, seductive, and utterly dance-inducing.

Charles Gorczynski, bandoneon
Ishtar Hernandez, violin

Spertus Institute proudly welcomes San Francisco-based Los Tangueros for a concert of Argentine tango by Jewish composers—with music and dance performed on stage in a style developed by Jewish immigrants to Argentina.

The performance will also include original music by Los Tangueros’ bassist and composer Sascha Jacobsen, heir to a musical legacy that goes back four generations, to Jacobsen’s great, great, great, greatgrandfather, a bassist for the Moscow Opera. Jacobsen’s compositions blend Argentine tango and folk rhythms into something completely new.
