In the ruins of an old mansion dating from 1895, the Trastienda holds 400 people seated at small tables and another 1,000 standing. A mecca for serious musicians and discerning fans, it attracts cutting-edge local bands, established Latin American talent and international artists such as Damien Rice.

By Deborah Procter - May 5 2011

Come and see a cool contemporary Argentinean ensemble, the ENS, led by Avant-garde composer, Oscar Edelstein, La Trastienda, 10th May 21hs. Book on line to choose your seat. It's not tango but it has all the intensity, passion and paradox of Argentina! "It's music in a physical sense, authentic dithyrambic music, realized simultaneously with millimetrical accuracy by an ensemble that Edelstein directs like someone possessed." Clarin, 2009

Tickets are between $35 (standing) to $90 for a seat at a table. Good food and ambient.
