La Milongata is a music ensemble devoted to Argentinian tango; it was created by the spanish singer Irene Aragón in 2015. The band consists of a bandoneon player, a piano player and a singer but its larger and richer version includes a violinist and double bass player. The musicians of La Milongata have been performing Argentinian tango for quite some time.
Frédéric Viale, composer and virtuoso instrumentalist, is one of the most renowned accordionists of the contemporary French panorama. He was seduced by Argentinian music from a very young age, and has been a member of various tango orchestras. Together with the pianist Eros Cordogli, an experienced musician who is also passionate about tango, they have created quality orchestras such as Spirito Tango, Tangoforte and Alma Argentina. Irene Aragón intense performances can be trace back to her tango singing in Latin America with Argentinian and Uruguayan musicians.
