Alturas - Tango-inspired music with a jazz influence.
Inspired by the music of Argentina, ‘Alturas’ combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz-inspired solos.
'Alturas' have been performing as a group since 2009. The group started as a duo with Gaye Thomas - flute and Jane Andino - piano. It has over the years grown to become a sextet, performing throughout Eastern Australia.
The group perform in venues in Sydney and Eastern Australia, including several performances for the National Argentine Day celebrations in Canberra, at the request of the Argentinean Embassy.
Their debut CD, Café con Tango includes works by Astor Piazzolla, Pablo Ziegler, Fernando Egozcue, as well as traditional tangos and some original tango-inspired pieces.
Alturas regularly perform to sellout audiences in Sydney, Blue Mountains, Newcastle, Canberra , Melbourne and the Central West.
