About

On the 100th anniversary of Astor Piazzolla’s birth, Piotr Zubek and Janek Pentz rediscovered the forgotten songs of this Argentinian composer, bandoneon virtuoso, pioneer of tango nuevo. Innovative, contemporary arrangement combines a jazzy approach to vocal improvisation with the unique sound of fingerstyle guitar. They played a sold-out Sunday afternoon show at Wakefield’s Red Shed in 2022, and undoubtedly deserve a much wider audience, as they return to the UK for an extended tour. Two engaging and  deeply skilful young musicians!


Piotr Zubek – vocals


Janek Pentz – guitar
