Mariano Gil – Orlando Dibelo || TANGO
Two tango generations recreating great classics of the “Época de Oro” and Astor Piazzolla.
Orlando Dibelo, former bandoneon player of the “Orquesta de José Basso”, and guitarist Mariano Gil, offer a repertoire of Tangos, Valses and Milongas, with a traditional aesthetic and with some personal touches in the musical arrangements. They include pieces from “Tango Clásico” such as La Cumparsita, El Choclo and A Media Luz, as well as compositions by Astor Piazzolla, representing almost completely the history of Tango with its interpretations.
