“Argentinan native Laura Camacho formed a powerhouse group enthralling in the wonder of tango music, led by the valuable voice of Ricardo Hurtado. The band’s afternoon show on the AthFest main stage on a hot Saturday was a festival highlight...”

“It was certainly a shock (though a pleasant one) waking up from the late night hardcore shows of the night before to this and the audience dancing the Argentine Tango. Throughout the show I was wondering where I could get a coffee and a cigarette and I am not even a regular consumer of either. In the end I was left with one thought over anything: I really need to learn how to tango.”

“Curran Prendergast provided subtle strumming on his guitar which served as a consistent base layer to many of the tunes. On top of Camacho and Prendergast’s strings, Bill Oglesby really stood out on the flute and saxophone. Oglesby and Franziska Brunner on clarinet complimented each other so smoothly that at times it felt like they slipped into jazz. The ability of the group to sway loosely between traditional tango, waltz and somehow into jazz kept me interested throughout the concert.”

“The Athens Tango Project is a relatively new local band, organized by Camacho and composed of other top-notch musical talent, many of whom study at the University of Georgia School of Music.”
