The Nuevo Tango Ensamble was founded in 1999 by Pasquale Stafano and Gianni 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 Nuevo Tango 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.
