Daniel “Pipi” Piazzolla pays tribute to his illustrious grandfather, with his band Escalandrum. Let them take you on a journey into the sensuous and magical world of Piazzola’s tango. In Pipi’s own unique style of course!

Welcome to the land of tango and of Piazzolla… of Daniel “Pipi” Piazzolla, grandson of the internationally-acclaimed composer. In the past 19 years, he has toured the world with his band Escalandrum, performing with such artists as Enrico Rava, Dave Holland, Ute Lemper and John Scofield. So when he finally decided to tackle the musical legacy of the family’s patriarch, he demonstrated considerable maturity. The tribute album Piazzolla Plays Piazolla, an eloquent musical mix of tango and jazz, was such an international hit that it was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award, winning three Premios Gardel, the Argentinean music awards. Do not miss this unique opportunity to enjoy Astor Piazzolla’s sensuous and magical music. In Pipi’s own unique style of course!
