In Berkeley on their second US tour, Juan Villarreal and Patricio “Pato” Crom perform fresh interpretations of classic tangos on guitar, one the original instruments of the genre.  Social dancers themselves, Juan & Patricio have a special gift for taking their two guitars and voice and creating music that is “100% MILONGUERISIMO BAILABLE” (100% super milonga-appropriate danceable music.)  They craft exquisitely danceable sets from their six albums, especially from their last two:  D’Arienzo en guitarras (2022) and Moderno trovador (2023).

Juan and Patricio met on stage at the Milonga del Moran in 2010 in Buenos Aires.  Patricio had come to play with his quintet “Malo Conocido,” and Juan was there to sing as a guest with Hernan “Cucuza” Castiello.  From that meeting the Duo Villarreal-Crom was born, and the musicians started a long journey, performing at festivals, milongas, and concert halls in Buenos Aires, and also in various countries of South America and Europe.

“Our guitars brought us together more than a decade ago, and we swore loyalty to them . . . For us, the duo is a way of life.”  –Juan Villarreal and Patricio Crom

Ashkenaz has a real, old-fashioned wooden floor with plenty of space for dancing!  Beer, wine, and empanadas are offered for sale.  All ages we.come.
