Café 852 is one of Hong Kong’s finest world music ensembles and the only musical group in Asia performing Argentinian Tango music. Formed in late 2016, the ensemble has been performing regularly in concert halls, festivals, performing arts spaces and music clubs in Hong Kong and has developed a strong following of music fans and aficionados of world music.

A Café 852 performance takes the audience on a musical trip to the birthplace of tango, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The ensemble’s performances are engaging, picturesque, entertaining and educational. The band often performs with live dancers, creating a full experience of sight and sound for the delight of the senses.

Café 852 has performed to large and small live audiences around Hong Kong, consistently entertaining and engaging audiences at venues such as the Freespace Festival, Kwun Tong Performance Space, TEDx, Taste of Hong Kong and at the Hong Kong Cultural Center for an audience of thousands in collaboration with the Hong Kong Philharmonic’s Swire Denim Series. Café 852 released a full length album on January 1, 2018 entitled Camino de Tango which is available online at all major retailers.

Café 852 has also developed orchestral pops and educational programs featuring the ensemble’s core repertoire with small orchestra and dancers. With the Café 852 core ensemble, 2 pairs of dancers and chamber orchestra, these programs are a delightful, educational and entertaining offering for the crossover classical and orchestral education audiences
