The Orquesta Típica Tango 02 has since 1996 built up a solid repertoire of traditional and contemporary tango music. Throughout those 25 years, Tango 02 has supplemented this with its own new dance and concert compositions resulting in this first album, completely in line with the character of tango music from the Rio de la Plata: urban popular dance music with often a touch of self-mockery.

Why? Therefore! Or in Spanish: Por eso.

Or also: just like that, because the inspiration and energy was there and Tango 02 wants to share the music that arises from that.  Catherine Smet, pianist with Tango 02 for many years, and Pato Lorente sign for these exciting tunes.

The album is published and distributed by the Dutch label I-C-U-B4-T.

It is as of now available at and you can listen the album on Spotify.
