About the Quartet

After two decades performing with the most important interpreters of tango, Pedro Giraudo debuted his own Tango Orchestra at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing and since then has become one of the most compelling tango artists worldwide. Among the many noteworthy events in Pedro Giraudo's career, in 2014 Pedro recorded bass on Ruben Blades' CD Tangos, which won a Grammy and a Latin Grammy. He is also the musical director of Tango for All's Blind, Mariela Franganillo Company's Tango Connection and Tango Recuerdo, and performed with U.S.'s most prominent tango artists including Pablo Ziegler, Hector Del Curto, and Luis Bravo's Forever Tango.

The Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet is composed of four of the most prominent musicians in the tango world. Nick Danielson is Assistant Concertmaster of the NYC Ballet Orchestra and enjoys a distinguished career as a violinist in both the classical and tango worlds. Rodolfo Zanetti is recognized as one of the most prominent solo bandoneonists in the United States, performing at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Ahmed Alom has been considered a prodigy since the age of 14, winning many first prizes on piano competitions, and now living in New York, where he continues to garner acclaim.
