The educated Tanguero

Essential Tango Knowledge

Ensemble Hyperion


OK, I am back from Europe and some month of other commitments.
The orchestra I want to present today is not from Argentina, but from Italy. I have picked this one, because they are really present in European Tango festivals. Actually, I was interested in orchestras performing “Cafe Dominguez”, a quite rare song (see my article about Sexteto Milonguero).
Ensemble Hyperion is an Italian group, formed in 1992, which has published 7 CDs so far. The latest CD (“Epoca de Oro”) was published in 2011. The range of songs is broad from traditional Tangos to Piazzolla music.

Here is the official webpage:

A lot of videos from their performances can be found on the internet. Here some examples:

Let´s start with “Cafe Domingues”:
