Carismático Tango Band
Enjoy a night of Tango Nuevo and musical virtuosity with Carismático.
Carismático is the brainchild of Karen Street who is known as one of the UK’s leading accordionists. She was contacted by Argentinian composer and pianist, Saul Cosentino, back in 2016 asking her to look at some of his compositions. This led Karen to create her ideal Tango band to perform his brilliant, emotionally charged compositions. She has added to the group’s repertoire with arrangements of classic Astor Piazzolla and her own creative and nuanced compositions.
