Event Details

Hailing from an illustrious musical family dating back as least five generations to a bassist for the Moscow Opera in the early 19th century, Sascha Jacobsen is a bassist who loves expanding on traditional forms. He’s explored his passion for tango in ensembles like the Musical Art Quintet and Trio Garufa, and his latest project Los Tangueros del Oeste might be his most adventurous yet. Featuring Seth Asarnow on the accordion-like bandoneon, Daniel Riera on analog synthesizer and EWI (electronic wind instrument), and violinist Ishtar Hernandez, Los Tangueros is steeped in the nuevo tango styles of Astor Piazzolla, Gotan Project, and Bajo Fondo. Focusing on Jacobsen’s original compositions, the group combines beats and textures from electronica, with influences from flamenco filtered through an improvisational lens. The band’s singular nuevo tango sound is cool and impassioned, sensuous, seductive and utterly dance-inducing.

Part of Yerba Buena Gardens Festival's Thursday Lunchtime series. For the full summer schedule, visit www.ybgfestival.org.
