“Chamber Music on Steroids…4.5 stars.” – John Shand, SMH

Tángalo is one of Australia’s premier modern tango projects creating the sounds of both the golden age of Argentine tango and contemporary fusions. Tángalo works in formats from duo to symphonic orchestra, bringing sounds together of violin, viola, double bass, piano, vocals, bass clarinet and the awesome force of bandoneons to create a powerful and yet moving sonic landscape.

In 2017 Tángalo, in conjunction with Sydney Tango House  helped to produce the first Australian Tango Festival in Sydney, to great critical acclaim.

In 2015 Tángalo completed a 30 concert Australian tour with the Latin-Grammy nominated Duo Ramírez-Satorre.

In 2014 Tángalo received a $20,000 Jump Mentorship from the Australia Council for the Arts allowing the ensemble to travel to Argentina to study tango music.

Owen is an Artistic-Director, bandoneonist, and principal composer/orchestrator of Tángalo.

As Owen is currently based in Buenos Aires, Tángalo is currently in hiatus.
