Style, incredible energy, superb artistic and professional performance in the elegant framing and, to crown it all, original sound – all this pertains to Virtuoso Orchestra KIEV TANGO PROJECT. Moreover, it is acknowledged by many people that KIEV TANGO PROJECT is a musical phenomenon of Ukraine!

In the 7 years of its functioning the quartet has released 4 albums: “Kiev-Tango-Project” (works of Ástor Piazzolla), “For Dancers” (tango hits dedicated to all who dance tango), “French Touch” (the music of Parisian streets) and “Tango Territory” (world tango hits), as well as numerous concert and dance programmes, including the following ones: “Ukrainika” (Ukrainian folk songs in the tango style), “Tango Nuevo” (works of Ástor Piazzolla played according to original scores and in the original composition), “Tango with an orchestra.” For the past years the musicians have given a huge amount of concerts in many Ukrainian cities and abroad. The largest concert tour was in China, and it has beaten all records as regards the number of concerts, venues and cities.

Interesting collaborations were made with such singers as Jamala, Nastia Kamenskykh (NK), Alyosha, Tayanna, Nadiia Meikher-Hranovska, Vlad Sytnyk and others;with such choreographers as Kostiantyn Tomilchenko, Olena Shoptenko, Vitalii Zahoruiko, Serhii Shuliko, duet “So Tango”, Argentinian dancers – Mauro Caiazza, Gustavo Guarnieri, Juan and Lisa Rosales and Mazen Kiwan (Lebanon).The Quartet “Kiev-Tango-Project” is a frequent guest at various Kyiv events, radio- and TV programmes, milongas, concerts.
