At the forefront of the genre, Suarez Paz TANGO redefines the music, song, dance and poetry of Buenos Aires as a complex, evolving art form, deeply rooted in tradition but with one foot in the next century - a vision that was passed on to its Artistic Director, Leonardo Suarez Paz by his mentors and family friends Astor Piazzolla & Horacio Ferrer, who revolutionized traditional tango.
Extending from 4 generations of unparalleled heritage, Leonardo Suarez Paz elevates the genre to the next level with modern choreographic elements, contemporary rhythms and harmonies and influences from classical, jazz and popular music, leading the way towards a new form of artistic expression as a creator of an undeniable modern style.
Wynton Marsalis, Artistic Director of Jazz At Lincoln Center, "Leonardo possesses a unique spirit and is a virtuoso extraordinaire on the violin…. he shows us how easily we can communicate across cultures if the desire and effort are there."
"The art and music of Leonardo Suarez Paz: Because tango is a music for dancing. It is classical music. It is dance and poetry and song. It is about the free, creative expression of the soul. It's about life—or rather what it can be." All About Jazz, D. Heinning
