Imagine an artist who perfectly exemplifies the rich history of tango, from the roots of traditional orquesta típica to the exciting new flares of contemporary tango.

Latin GRAMMY Award winner Pedro Giraudo has made this dream a reality. A passionate ambassador of his Argentinian roots, he brings exciting and new twists that fuse modern elements like Jazz into the timeless form while paying homage to the lushness and beauty of traditional tango.

The Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet is widely acknowledged as one of the most compelling tango ensembles today, moving forward from the giant footsteps of Astor Piazzolla, and continuing to take this musical genre into new territories. With immense respect for its roots and rich musical past, the ensemble effectively serves as an active ambassador of tango and a proponent of its evolution. The quartet’s fervent and virtuosic musical style takes elements from Argentine tango, European classical music, and American jazz, and combines them gracefully and organically, bringing something new and exciting to the form while retaining all the lushness and beauty that characterizes the genre.

The NYC based ensemble is very active and has performed at Lincoln CenterMoab Music FestivalChamber Music RaleighArizona Music FestivalRichmondLowell and Montana Folk Festivals, BAM, NJPAC and the DiMenna Center. They have also performed and led workshops at Dartmouth College and the University of Maryland, and have collaborated with the Chesapeake Orchestra, Yonkers Philharmonic, the Washington Heights Camerata, and the UMBC Orchestra.
