Milonga de Cuatro

The Orquesta Milonga de Cuatro will be providing live tango dance music at the Saturday evening milonga.

The “Milonga De Cuatro” tango project was “born” in September 2018 when the four professional musicians united to play tango music and bring it to the stages of Auckland; so far including The Pumphouse Theatre, Lewis Eady Steinway Showroom, Nathan Homestead and the Birkenhead Library.

Being focused initially on mostly Piazzolla and Gardel’s music, “Milonga De Cuatro” has already expanded their repertoire much wider into traditional Argentinian tango dance music.

"Milonga de Cuatro" comprises Natalia Meyta (Piano), Irina Lgotkina (Violin), Lian Jones (Accordion) and Marija Dimitrijevic (Double bass).
