El Viejo Almacén was the first Tango Show of Buenos Aires. They focus in the traditional tango, though this Old Tango House also offers excellent stage tango and Latin-American folk music.
The rhythm of the show is energetic and happy, the demonstrations have euphoria but as well passion and sensuality, with a mix of tang "brushing" the floor, the most traditional, and stage tango. The show takes place in a small space but still is big show format. As well as the excellent dance we can emphasize the quality of the quintet music performance, a group of real veterans of tango with years and years of expertise, who show their enjoyment of playing this beautiful music together. Hugo Marcel, the lead singer and one of the icons of tango, gives a passionate and very personal performance.
Argentinean folk music is also present in this show with a several songs and dance full of energy, you'll see the public ovation of some well-known Latin-American hits.
Each group in the audience will have its own table. Talking about food, as starter we suggest Prosciutto Pate with green leaves, butter and toasted brioche. There are several choices as main course, like trout with herbs sauce on port wine and steamed vegetables sparkled with olive oil. Do not miss the trade mark of El Viejo Almacén: chocolate mousse showered with coconut shaves.
