Meet Nuevo Tango Ensamble:

Bandoneonist Gianni Iorio, pianist Pasquale Stafano and bassist Pierluigi Balducci have pooled together the love they share for jazz and classical music and their devouring passion for tango and in particular for Astor Piazzolla's music, by setting up a by now well-experienced ensemble that performs all over Europe.

Their particular and original sound is accompanied with a poetry, melody and great energy and the original compositions of the trio find a Mediterranean variation of a world jazz-tango idea.


Bandoneon, piano, bass.
