Paloma Bica & Andrew James

Andrew and Paloma explore early tango from composers such as Julio de Caro, Roberto Firpo and Fransisco Canaro. Alongside the richness of tango interpretation, this music uncovers connections to jazz through these composer’s years of playing in Europe. Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn occasionally make an appearance. Andrew and Paloma launch themselves back to the present via return flight: into the epicentre of the genre, ready to play modern tango as musicians of the present.
