Still working on that hot first release.



Athens Tango Project is a local group committed to bringing Argentine
tango music to the northern hemisphere. Laura Camacho, a veteran of the
tango music scene of Buenos Aires, came to Athens, Georgia to study
upright bass and quickly found there to be a lack of tango music in the
Classic City. Camacho assembled a group of top notch local musicians
from Nicaragua (Ricardo Hurtado), Poland (Teresa Grynia), and the US
(John Phillips). In addition to the main lineup, an extended lineup of
musicians have worked with the group and are called in for larger gigs.
Athens Tango Project’s collective of world class musicians have played
with the likes of Bela Fleck, Ben Folds, Catupecu Machu, Cee-Lo Green,
Deerhunter, members of Drive-By Truckers, members of Olivia Tremor
Control and Circulatory System, Herbie Hancock, Diana Krall, Las Del
Abasto, Layma Azur, Matisuyahu, and Christian McBride. The result is the
Athens Tango Project, a delightfully different trip to another part of
the world.
