Latin GRAMMY winner Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet

New York-based Argentine tango

Latin GRAMMY Award winner bassist and composer Pedro Giraudo is regarded as one of the most compelling tango artists today— an active cultural ambassador for this beautiful and passionate music of his native Argentina. His compositions represent the evolution of tango, from its roots in the traditional orquesta típica, to tango nuevo as epitomized by Astor Piazzolla, and to his own sound that respects the past and looks to the future, bringing something new and exciting to the form while retaining all its lushness and beauty. His quartet consists of four virtuoso instrumentalists who have played the mainstages of the US, including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and 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 chamber concert performance.

His latest CD, “Vigor Tanguero,” has the distinguished recognition as 2018 Latin GRAMMY winner for “Best tango album.”

Pedro Giraudo also leads a full Tango Orchestra, as well as a Tango Trio featuring piano, bandoneón, bass.
