We are a French Tango group located in Paris. We chose our name as a tribute to General Manuel Belgrano, one of the founding fathers of Argentina who's ideals were inspired by French revolution. We consider that the society choices that were made then in Argentina, made possible the Tango we experience today in all its universality!
We have all been in the tango for a while, dancing, playing, organizing milongas, teaching the dance... so this is pretty much what we do.
The repertoire of Belgrano is 1000% dancable. We play traditionnal themes that we enrichen with our own compositions and some songs of the French musette repertoire that we play in the argentian style.
In some occasions, we will work on differents formats. We are already studying the opportinuty of a cuarteto and the possibility to add a singer.
Do not hesitate to contact us for any information !
