La Busca is the passionate sound of an all female tango ensemble, backing the enigmatic Argentinean singer and tango dancer, Juan Veron de Astrada, who hails from the thriving milonga scene of Buenos Aires. "Gorgeous, sparkling and ebullient tangos from the 1930s Golden Era, a dash of Piazzolla, lyrical and nostalgic Porteño vocals; all eruditely and expertly executed. A hush fell over the audience in the milonga triste" - Andrew James, pianist/founder, Colectivo29/Tango Collusion Trio.
The sextet are a danceable, orchestral tango experience who specialise in traditional tango from the early 20th century Argentina plus original compositions. The ensemble have close ties with the Australian professional tango dance scene and regularly perform at large dance and cultural events.
La Busca perform as part of the larger La Academia Tango Club, an orchestra based in Buenos Aires who recently formed the Melbourne Tango Orchestra.
La Busca released their debut, self-titled album in December 2017 which was warmly received by local and National radio stations.
La Busca took their album on tour in 2018 to Tasmania, where they appeared at Cygnet Folk Festival and MoNA, also headlining at The Tamar Valley Folk festival. The tour then took them to Port Fairy Folk Festival and the National Folk Festival, Canberra.
La Busca are vocalist Juan Veron, Amy Lynch (piano/bandoneon/accordion) Kirsty Pittman (guitar) Jessica McLachlan (flute) Caitlin French (violin) and Elise Winterflood (double bass). La Busca are guaranteed to transport a time of grand romance and passionate eloquence.
