When Australian classical mandolinist Ruth Roshan was introduced to live Argentinean Tango in Paris at the age of 23, she was hooked. Now, with her quintet, Tango Noir she has recorded an original album of bittersweet, melodic Tango inspired pieces and songs, and gathered an exceptional group of musicians around her in the process.

Their self-titled debut album was released in August 2009, featuring fresh arrangements of classic pieces by Astor Piazzolla, contemporary tango adaptations of Leonard Cohen and Macy Gray, plus Ruth's own original compositions for the genre.

In their second all original album, "Darling ... Keep it to Yourself", lush arrangements combine with Ruth's bittersweet lyrics to create music which is listenable and beautiful, new and nostalgic all at the same time (available from Black Market Music www.blackmarketmusic.com.au). They are currently recording a third original album.

Tune into Global Village with Roger, 5-7pm for a live set from Ruth Roshan and Tango Noir.
