Athens Tango Project
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. She assembled a band consisting of assorted percussion, piano, violin, saxophone and of course, her native bass. The result is the Athens Tango Project, a delightfully different trip to another part of the world.
The group plays eclectic mix of music from Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, and even a few jazz standards.
Swing Street Dance Band
Swing Street Dance Band plays a mix of swing, beat, salsa, Cha Cha Cha, mambo, cuban son, and jazz.
