Created in July, 2009, by Erskine Maytorena (third generation tango musician and opera singer), QTANGO performs authentic Argentine tango arrangements throughout the southwest. They have had multiple tours including appearances in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, Tucson, Sedona, Las Vegas, El Paso, Santa Fe and Albuqeurque. Erskine Maytorena has produced, directed and performed in operas, zarzuelas, theater and concerts for over twenty years in Europe and the United States. He is the voice of QTANGO, plays bandoneon, clarinet, and trumpet and  leads the orchestra.

Specializing in the traditional tango music of the “Golden Age” of the great Argentine tango orchestras, QTANGO’s dynamic and powerful music keeps dancers on the floor and listeners enthralled. Every song is a novella; a story of love, betrayal, desperation and hope. QTANGO’s musicians give the audience a unique and intimate experience, an acoustic resonance only an orchestra can provide, a journey into the romance, passion and elegance of tango.
