The climate changes are our reality. Time to wake up and join a movement that will save the Planet.
The Camerata Porteña, founded in 1986 by Marcelo Rodríguez Scilla, at the request of Astor Piazzolla himself, has been dedicated since its inception to the renovation of Contemporary Tango.
Its distinctive feature is the successful combination of the subtlety and precision of chamber music, with the expressive strength of the music of Buenos Aires, both in the arrangements and interpretation of the Piazzollean work and in the conception of own creations.
The international specialized press has referred to the Camerata Porteña as “the authentic heirs of Piazzolla”, not only for the exquisite interpretation of his work, but also for continuing his legacy with avant-garde compositions.

The audience offered strong and extended applauses to the “porteños” –as natives from Buenos Aires are called- acknowledging their artistic quality and interpretative beauty.
Piazzolla legitimate heirs. Among the many contemporary tango groups, the Camerata Porteña occupies a special place because it was created at the behest of Piazzolla himself. The Argentine group began its career in 1986.
