Hector Del Curto Tango Quintet has been praised as “superb,” with “powerful and dynamic” performances that have revived and extended the rich traditions of Argentine Tango. Del Curto is one of the latest and greatest in a line of musicians who worked directly with legends of Argentine Tango: Arthur Piazzolla and Osvaldo Pugliese.
Argentine Tango is a passionate and sensual musical form that developed in 19th century Buenos Aires: the music is filled with dramatic rhythms and soulful melodies. This sound is deeply powerful—driving music that makes you want to move—yet also nostalgic and quietly hypnotic.
Formed in June 2003 by master bandoneon player Héctor Del Curto, the Hector Del Curto Tango Quintet has performed around the world with prestigious guest artists such as Pablo Ziegler and Paquito D´Rivera.
