Latin GRAMMY winner Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet

New York-based Argentine tango

Latin GRAMMY Award winner Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet represents the evolution of tango, from its roots in the traditional Orquesta típica, then to tango nuevo as epitomized by Astor Piazzolla, and now to a contemporary sound that respects the past and looks to the future.

He has won renown as an active cultural ambassador of this beautiful and passionate music of his native Argentina, bringing something new and exciting to the form while retaining all the lushness and beauty of tango.

After two decades performing with the most important interpreters of tango, Pedro debuted his own Tango Orchestra at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing and since then has become one of the most compelling tango artists worldwide. Among the many noteworthy events in Pedro Giraudo’s career, in 2014 Pedro recorded bass on Ruben Blades’ CD “Tangos”, which won a Grammy and a Latin Grammy. He is also the musical director of Tango for All’s “Blind”, Mariela Franganillo Company’s “Tango Connection” and “Tango Recuerdo,” and performed with U.S.’s most prominent tango artists including Pablo Ziegler, Hector Del Curto, and Luis Bravo’s “Forever Tango“.
