Leonardo Suarez Paz’s Piazzolla 100 is an interdisciplinary performing arts project that showcases a groundbreaking new style, a unifying artistic language for the Americas which drawing on the common roots of Tango and Jazz and Classical Music, as shaped by the culture of African and European migration to the new world. Representing the culture of Tango in all of its forms of expression, this project affords an opportunity for generations of artists across genres and disciplines to come together and express through a renewed artistic idiom of cultural unity and inclusion.
Creating across cultures and genres, Artistic Director and “virtuoso extraordinaire,” Leonardo Suarez Paz continues a family legacy of over 100 years in the genre, beginning with Gabino Ezeiza to Fernando Suarez Paz who was instrumental in creating the Nuevo Tango alongside Piazzolla. Following in the footsteps of his mentors Astor Piazzolla and Horacio Ferrer, Leonardo “shows us how easily we can communicate across cultures if the desire and effort are there.” (Wynton Marsalis, Artistic Director Jazz at Lincoln Center)

Leonardo Suarez Paz is Tango Royalty... powerful and sensual.

His knowledge of the tango violin playing conveys a century of individual styles.
