Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet

It is said that tango, swaying the brothels of Argentina, pushed men into each other’s arms to practice the mating dance for the women there. Sweeping across Paris, tango became fashionable and was reborn to high society in South America, who accepted the form in reaction to the French capital’s approval. Tango surged, dwindled, and swelled in popularity over decades. Pedro Giraudo, an Argentine applying nimble artistry to buoyant jazz and tango alike, plays alongside his Tango Quartet, presenting the music of Astor Piazzolla. Honoring the late Argentine composer and musician, the Tango Quartet highlights moody, passionate nuevo tango with virtuosity. – Christina Garcia
