Created in July, 2009 by Erskine Maytorena, a third generation tango musician and opera singer, QTANGO performs authentic Argentine tango arrangements throughout the southwest, with 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, also playing bandoneon, clarinet, and trumpet in addition to leading 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. 

Whether touring as a trio, quartet, or performing gala events with over 14 musicians, every performance is sophisticated, engaging, nostalgic, and moving.  TangoBoise is pleased to welcome the QTango trio:  

  • Erskine Maytorena: Voice, Clarinet, Bandoneon 
  • Olga Tikhovidova: Violin 
  • Natalia Tikhovidova: Piano
