Tango de mi Vida with the Beltango Trio and dancers Miriam Larici & Leonardo Barrionuevo

Tango de mi Vida combines three musicians from one of the world's most famous tango orchestras, Beltango Quinteto, with dancers Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo, masters of Argentina’s tango dance style, considered the top tango couple on the planet.

The tango trio from the Beltango Quinteto stem from Belgrade, Serbia, the first authentic tango orchestra from the Balkans and one of the most sought-after tango orchestras in the world. For over two decades, they have played more than 800 concerts in 30 countries. With an abundant repertoire from traditional tango to the nuevo or modern tango compositions of Astor Piazzolla, Beltango Quintento mixes together deep emotions with the high energy of virtuoso musicians.
