Los Chantas are a multinational tango ensemble based in New York City. (The name is old Argentine street slang for tricksters or fellows up to no good.) Their repertoire draws from the great Argentine tango tradition from the guardia vieja to the present. The group has been playing in milongas, festivals, clubs, theaters, and other venues in and around New York since its inception in 2002. With original arrangements of songs by Gardel, Troilo, Salgán, Piazzolla, and others, and a playful, improvised style, Los Chantas infuse classic tangos with new life and unique flavor. Featuring David Hodges on bandoneón, Emilio Teubal on piano and Sergio Reyes on violin.
