Quinteto de Academia
From Buenos Aires, Argentina. QUINTETO DE ACADEMIA was founded in 2016 through the initiative of Leandro Ragusa and Nili Grieco, with the aim of creating a new sound experience for audiences with the interpretation of Tango and Argentine Music, performing their own compositions and original versions and arrangements of tangos, milongas, waltzes and traditional music of the genre.
Breaking down barriers between classical and popular music, the QUINTETO DE ACADEMIA, with its unique instrumentation of bandoneon and woodwind quartet (flute, oboe, clarinet and bass clarinet), is the first ensemble with these characteristics in the history of the Tango Music. Quinteto de Academia has released its first album "Dinamica del viento" in Buenos Aires, Boston, New York and Montreal during 2018. On its third tour, the Quintet has been invited to perform in the Montreal International Tango Festival, in August 2019.
