Over Tangata

Tangata is a Tango ensemble formed by  professional musicians who specialize in the Argentinian Tango for many years.


In their own innovating and unique style they arrange compositions by the old Tango masters as: Troilo, Puigliese, De Caro, Di Sarli, Piazzolla, Salgan and many other composers.


They also perform their own special compositions written by pianist Margreet Markerink. Margreet won first price of the Dutch Tango Award ’’El Choclo” for some of her compositions.


Tangata started as Trio Tangata and performed in The Nederlands, Portugal, France, Turkey, Germany, Belgium, Finland, Spain, Italy and Argentina.


Tangata performed at festivals, theaters, tango salons, as wel as for private events, and can play as duo, trio, kwartet or kwintet, according to the demands and wishes.


Tangata has worked for many years with the professional tango dance- couple : Carlos and Mirella who are the current (2017) European Champions.


Tangata performs Tango, full of passion, energetic, lively, ritmically and with a scent of melancolie, which makes each concert a special moment full of emotion.

Jacqueline Edeling


A true expert on bellows-instruments, Jacqueline plays every imaginable form of these instruments in a wide variety of styles. A definitive choice for tango led to a complete focus on the bandoneon, playing major concert halls in the Netherlands and abroad either as a soloist with different orchestras or as a member of several professional tango groups. Jacqueline is also an arranger/musician in Fuego Latino and has her own solo theatre show.

Andrea Bentivoglio


Andrea Bentivoglio


Andrea Bentivoglio started playing the violin at the age of 9 as a pupil of L. Spiller in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

At the age of 17 she was invited to study at the Menuhin Academy in Gstaad, Switzerland.

There she met violinist Ana Chumachenco and moved to Germany to study with her at the Conservatory of Augsburg.

In 1985 she moved to the Netherlands to complete her study as pupil of Herman Krebbers at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam.

During 1989-1994 she played at the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, were she worked with many marvelous musicians.

After motherhood Andrea started playing other sorts of music, such as the music of her roots: the Tango!

She met Margreet and Jacqueline whilst performing with both in different groups, and joined Tangata in 2015.

Andrea works as an independent musician, playing different styles of music in several groups and formations ranging from duo to orchestra, and she loves to teach the violin to children and adults of all ages.

Andrea: "For me, the most important thing of making music is to be able to express my feelings through my instrument: my goal is to move people with my music and be able to touch their soul."

Margreet studied classical piano  at the conservatorium (under supervision of Mathijs Verschoor ), as well as music therapy . Throughout her educational pathway she got inspired by the Tango music via the music of Astor Piazzola and after she visited some great tango concerts of Color Tango.

She decided to dedicate her musical career to this Argentinean sound and proceeded by specializing in Tango music at the Conservatorium in Rotterdam. Her mentors Carel Kraayen, Leo Vervelde, and Gustavo Beytelmann taught her how to resonate the music of some great Tango masters, such as Astor Piazolla, and how to compose her own Tango sound as well.

Many concerts theatre-shows and cd's followed with Tango Dorado.  

 Together with Jacqueline Edeling (bandoneon) and Boris Franz (contrabass) she formed the ensemble Trio Tangata, which is now  complemented with Andrea Bentivoglio (violin) and   Jeanine Geerts(vocals) 

 They  performed worldwide tours with concerts in Buenos Aires, Minnesota, Helsinki , Spain, Istanbul, Lübeck ,  France and Lisbon

 Margreet also seeks to establish the connection between Tango and other musical fields, by collaborating with various fellow musicians of diverse backgrounds. This resulted in a blend between Tango and classical music by working with the Ensemble Four Seasons, Hague Chamber ensemble, and the soloist Emmy storms, but also in a theater program with Kees Scholten. And World music with the Tibetan singer Namgyal Lhamo.

 Margreet received the first "Choclo composition Award" for five new Tango compositions. 

As music can bring people together, she recorded “Moving friends” for her dearest close by and far away. In this album, she, complemented compositions from Astor Piazolla, Carlos Gardel, Anibal Troilo, and Johan Sebastian Bach with 12 of her own compositions.
