El Muro Tango is an Argentine-Norwegian tango band that in record time has taken the international tango world by storm. With their energetic stage performance and unique expression, El Muro Tango has thrilled tango dancers and music lovers throughout Europe and South America.

Since the band's debut in 2016, they have toured the world and played to full houses at prestigious festivals and concert halls such as the Oslo Chamber Music Festival, Innsbruck Tango Festival, The Royal Concertgebouw, and Usina del Arte. The band performed in the finale of Norway´s Got Talent 2018 with the dance couple Cyrena Drusine & Steinar Refsdal. They work regularly with Argentina's foremost tango singers such as Juan Villarreal, Chino Laborde, and Negro Falótico.

El Muro Tango released its debut album Nostálgico on Galileo Music (DE) in November 2018 to great reviews in the international press. Their music consists of traditional Argentine tango with a fresh and modern harmonic language, incorporating elements of jazz and South American rhythms.
