Orquesta Típica Fernández Fierro
Creators of transgressive, contemporary tango, Orquesta Típica Fernández Fierro make a big impression on stage.

Founded in 2001, a year of much social and political tumult in Argentina, La Orquesta Típica Fernández Fierro takes inspiration from the tango orchestras of the 1950s, particularly that of Osvaldo Pugliese, and injects a dose of punk attitude to create an aggressive sound and delivery that takes tango in new directions.

The orchestra performs on Wednesdays at 9pm at their own venue which they dubbed Club Atlético Fernández Fierro, at Sánchez de Bustamante 772 in the Abasto area of the Balvanera neighbourhood. Taking influences from German expressionism, they combine music, lights and lyrics that reflect a rebellious vision of urban realities, anxieties and struggles. The group has transcended the traditional tango scene and taken the music to new venues, touring Europe, America and Oceania with their wide repertoire of their own original compositions and new arrangements of traditional pieces.
