Carel Kraayenhof y su Sexteto Canyengue

Tradition and innovation

Carel achieves with his Sexteto Canyengue a personal communicative way of making music: rhythmical, melodically ánd inviting to dance. Writing his own arrangements and enchanting new compositions show that respect for tradition and innovation can come together.
Having conquered the hearts of old and new tango generations in Argentina and Europe, the thrilling live performances of the Sexteto Canyengue tend to be highly addictive to tango dancers…...

The rich repertoire of maestros

As a young musician Carel Kraayenhof was invited by the old maestros of the tango to perform together in Argentina and by now Kraayenhof has become himself the direct descendant of Astor Piazzolla and Osvaldo Pugliese.
Astor Piazzolla invited Carel in 1987 to New York to perform as bandoneón soloist in the tango musical ‘Tango Apasionado’. After his return to Holland Carel co-founded Sexteto Canyengue, which this year celebrates it’s 25th jubilee. Invited by Osvaldo Pugliese in 1990, the sextet toured with the Pugliese orchestra in Argentina. Alongside the many standards of the orchestras of Troilo, D’Arienzo, Di Sarli and Canaro, the rich repertoire of maestro Pugliese forms the basis of the sextet’s repertoire. Sexteto Canyengue has accompanied the great maestros of tango dance, Antonio Todaro and Pepito Avellaneda & Suzuki and Goria & Eduardo, and collaborates with renowned dance couples such as Claudia & Esteban and Rubén & Sabrina, with whom the sextet toured extensively throughout the world. Also the sextet led several times the National Ballet from the Netherlands since 1998, performing the ballet choreographed by Hans van Manen ’5 Tangos’ with music of Astor Piazzolla.
