Astor Piazzolla in concert "PIAZZOLLA! Not Only Tango”" this April 5-6 at RCBC Plaza

I'm not a fan or a music fanatic of this kind of music style or the name Astor Piazzolla is not familiar to me. But when I googled his name and found a couple of videos in YouTube, I just got to fall in love with the music and style...its the music that I like to hear with lots of strings and keys.

Astor Piazolla is the Father of Tango Nuevo. Also featured at the concert is Mr. Gladwin Pantastico, a Filipino classical guitar as part of the international crew.

Here's a performance of Astor Piazolla performing Libertango

Ástor Pantaleón Piazzolla, (1921 –1992) was an Argentine tango composer and a virtuoso bandoneonist.

Piazzolla, The most important composer of this style, revolutionized tango in the 1950s, introducing not only the fusion of different genres but blending new instruments such as the electric guitar, or the fusion of electronic and acoustic sounds.
