Our plan

Tango collusion are contemporary music group that blur
genre boundaries between contemporary jazz, world, and
classical music, to create high quality artistic outcomes
and appeal across genre markets and demographics. The
group includes well-known musicians from Victorian
Opera, Melbourne’s vibrant latin music scene, jazz, and
tango musicians. Members of Tango Collusion Sextet have
dedicated their careers to this genre, having lived, studied,
and performed in Buenos Aires and Uruguay, and received
Australia Council funding to attend workshops in Portland,
Oregon over three consecutive years, and even written PhD
and honours theses on contemporary tango.
