Típica Messiez performing live at the 9th Philly Tango Fest in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on May 26th, 2019.

Típica Messiez is a newly-formed, authentic 10-piece Argentine tango orchestra comprised of renowned tango musicians. Under the musical direction of its founder and pianist, Emiliano Messiez, Típica Messiez plays both original and classic tango arrangements.  If you dance tango, you’ll be up on your feet all night long; if you enjoy listening to tango, you’ll find that your toe just won’t stop tapping.  This is the perfect orchestra for tango dancers and music aficionados alike, for a milonga or concert setting.  Energy, rhythm, great arrangements, and a broad range of dynamics will make Típica Messiez your new favorite tango orchestra.

‘Orquesta típica’ is a term for a band that plays popular music and has about 8 to 12 musicians. In Argentina & Uruguay, the term Orquesta Típica is ‘typically’ associated with Tango music and usually comprised of a violin section, a bandoneon section (the signature Tango instrument) and a rhythm section including a piano and a double bass.
