"by Glenda C."

"Pablo Motta has assembled a group of extremely talented, tireless and passionate musicians who are clearly devoted to the rich legacy of tango music. They lovingly embroider the tapestry, both individually and in response to each other in ever-changing combinations. Los Angeles is indeed fortunate to have this musical treasure which continues to grow and develop in complexity. Thanks again for the fantastic concert! The music was stunning and the narrative so informative for people learning about the history of tango. A great resource for the community! "

"Not knowing much about Tango music, I was shocked at how riveting these performers were and how glorious the music sounded. I honestly couldn't wait to give a standing ovation and shout, "Bravo!" We were all out of our seats. It was just that good."

"I told my friend sitting next to me, "It's just like being in Buenos Aires... a superb musical evening for all of us. Great to have this quality of music in Los Angeles. The more we can hear your father, the better. Hope that next time we can get more of the dancers out to experience this 8 person group."

"What a spectacular evening. In addition to the tallented musicians, the education provided on the instruments and the origins of the pieces was well appreciated. The whole evening was pure magic, like being transported to far away places... Los Angeles is so fortunate to have such passionate professionals in our own backyard. Quite a rare treat."

The Los Angeles Tango Ensemble (LATE) is a chameleon-like group. It functions as a trio, quartet, quintet or even a full tango orchestra. Members include native Argentinians and Americans alike and all are young, vibrant musicians. The core of this ensemble is made up of guitarrist Marcelo Caceres and doublebassist Pablo Motta and to them, a 3rd musician is added which could include violin, viola, cello, piano and saxophone. Bandoneon players often join the group and adds a more traditional flavor. The ensemble features mostly traditional tangos but also showcases Pablo's and Marcelo's writing abilities. Pablo is in charge of arranging and leading the group. The LATE hosts a milonga (a tango social dance) and performs every Wednesday at Club "EL Baron" in Culver City, Los Angeles, CA. 8641 W. Washington Blvd, Cluver City, CA 90232 from 8:30pm 'till 12:30 am.
