De la Noche is an Asheville-based group dedicated to recreating the seductive sound of the classic Tango orchestras that thrived in Buenos Aires and Montevideo in the 1930’s and 40’s, when Tango dancing was all the rage. Comprised of bandoneon, piano, violins, and bass, De la Noche plays music that is both romantic and emotionally charged. It is perfect for dancing or listening, possibly with eyes closed.
