The Beltango quinteto was founded in 1998 with the objective to introduce to the
music lovers the culture and music of Tango.

“Beltango” is equally successful in performing on large concert podiums, theater
stages , smaller chamber rooms, jazz and tango clubs, as well as in other exclusive
halls, where, the spirit of Buenos Aires revives.

audience all abundance of the tango repertoire, so that, apart from traditional tango
numbers, as well as compositions of tango-nuevo trend of Astor Piazzolla, it
includes also new compositions of contemporary authors who find their inspiration
in tango, but all in adhering to its basic idea, they do not hesitate to make small
excursions to some other musical trends, specially to Balkan music, and combine
them with tango.
