“Quinteto de Academia”
From Buenos Aires – Argentina. A new sound
concept for tango and Argentine music,
performing original compositions and new
arrangements of traditional music of the genre.
The 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. Quinteto de Academia is currently presenting its first album
“Dinamica del viento”. Tour: NY, Boston, Montreal.
