Tango in the Afternoon

From its origins in 19th century Argentina, tango has evolved to include a variety of musical elements. Its more modern version, called neuvo tango, is what Los Tangueros del Oeste plays. Featuring bandoneon, guitar, violin, analog synthesizer and dancers, the group draws inspiration from the nuevo tango styles of Astor Piazzolla, Gotan Project, and Bajo Fondo. They will perform on April 24 at 2 p.m. at the Mendocino College Theatre in Ukiah. Tickets are $30 and available at
