After a successful tour in Curaçao, Aruba and Bonaire with the Kraayenhof Tango Ensemble we are reaching the last month of 2013.
Through social media we have kept you updated on a daily basis on our school and theater concerts in these three amazing islands.
In our new website you can also read two reviews of our concerts in Curaçao and Bonaire.
Robbert Brantz (webmaster) and Mark Schoots (marketing) worked really hard on our new website during the last few weeks, where now you can also order CD or download them digitally. Our DVD Tango Heroes and the book Het leven in 3 minuten can be ordered. A great tip for the holiday season!?

Update project Jujuy
All bandoneons for the Jujuy project are being repaired and tuned by Oscar Fischer from Buenos Aires (bandoneón tuner, maker and restorer) who is a good friend of Daniel Vedia (bandonen player and teacher from Jujuy). Oscar has been recently in The Netherlands to present his self made bandoneon, the first Argentinean bandoneon!
Carel met with Oscar during his bandoneón reparation workshop given specially for bandoneon players at the Rotterdam’s Conservatorium. Carel is pleasantly surprised with newly made bandoneón. The kickoff brainstorm session has taken place for possible new bandoneóns made specially for children. Making possibilities for the future generations!
