Tangalo will play on 31st October at Bexley RSL for the Sydney Tango Milonga 

 Formed in 2011 by Emily-Rose Šarkova and Owen Salomé, Tángalo grew from a desire to create a greater awareness of tango culture in Australia, and a fierce desire to see more tango-dancing to live tango-music.
The group has performed in numerous Australian festivals including 2013 Made in Argentina Festival, Buenos Aires in the Southern Highlands, Tango in the Spring and the 2012, 2013 & 2014 National Folk Festivals. It's Halloween - so if getting in a spooky mood takes your fancy make the most of it!
