The Nuevo Tango Ensamble was founded in
Iorio in order to celebrate Astor Piazzolla`s music, but also
to rearrange it. The Trio approximates Piazzolla's compositions with deep admiration
with the aim to interpret the complex musical expressions and the characteristical
sounds from Buenos Aires. This convergence became quickly a deep passion of
Ensamble, supported by the enthusiastic feedback by the audience.
For about 6 years the trio has been presenting the project of tango-jazz in which
Piazzolla's composition, tango songs and own compositions are played with jazz improvisations.
Ensamble performed in Europe and out of Europe in prestigious Theaters,
