Redwood Tango Ensemble is a leading North American sextet dedicated to contemporary tango music. Known for visceral and powerful stage performances and innovative original music, Redwood Tango Ensemble is a singular voice within the new generation of cutting edge tango composition and future-driven chamber music in North America.

This sextet from Oakland, California is led by composer and bandoneonist Charles Gorczynski. The ensemble has developed a signature style and sound within the world of tango composition, writing honest and imaginative music that bends conventional notions of genre and musical identity. RTE is a tango group in its lifeblood, and its sound and sensibility also reach into new music, chamber music, and modern jazz.
