Pedro Giraudo Tango Ensembles

New York-based Argentine tango

PEDRO GIRAUDO 2 (Ph. Cr. Erin Patrice O'Brien)

After years of performing and arranging tango with the most important interpreters of tango in the United States, and leading his own critically acclaimed and award-winning jazz orchestra, bassist/bandleader Pedro Giraudo now presents his own tango projects, the largest of which is the Pedro Giraudo Tango Orchestra, which was  debuted at Lincoln Center.

The repertoire features tango favorites ranging from early to late 20th century—a time when tango music and dance was vibrant and gloriously beautiful.  The music is made for dancing, but when it is performed at this level, it makes for a superb concert performance.

In addition to the full Orchestra, there is the Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet, and the Pedro Giraudo Tango Trio, featuring piano, bandoneón, bass (and for the quartet, also violin).
