Bio: Pablo Estigarribia is a world renown virtuoso Argentine tango pianist, arranger and composer that began his musical journey in Classical Music, with its culmination when he was awarded with the 1st Prize of the "Bienal Juvenil" National Competition. After a detour through jazz he discovered Tango in 2005 when he was awarded with the Orquesta Escuela de Tango scholarship for joining the ensemble under the directorship of Maestro Emilio Balcarce, with whom he had his first European tour. He continued the path as a Tango performer through Germany, France, Belgium, Japan, Russia, Finland, Canada, USA and Cuba, in over 1000 concerts, with elite Argentine tango orchestras as follows, Victor Lavallen Orchestra, Tango Pasi—n, Lisandro Adrover Quintet and as a solo artist. The attainment of the prestigious Gardel Prize in 2015 for the best tango recording by a new artist on his album, Tangos Para Piano (EPSA), with the highest rating by the local press, deemed Estigarribia the recognition of the Argentine Tango industry. He also was awarded with the Medal of Honor by the Argentine Tango Society for his educational interventions in Stowe Tango Music Festival (Vermont) in 2014 and 2015. EstigarribiaÕs ascendancy in career brought him to Japan in 2016 where he was celebrated and highlighted in the Tokyo Shimbun newspaper. In 2018 he moved to NYC, played Blue Note Jazz and made appearances on NBC, Univision, Telemundo. Privileged to have studied and performed for numerous years with legendary tango musicians such as Emilio Balcarce, Horacio Cabarcos, Maria Gra–a, and to have composed and arranged for a decade with former Osvaldo Pugliese arranger Victor LavallŽn, Estigarribia proudly assumes the role of transmitting his knowledge and expertise to the new generation of students and tango music enthusiasts. He believes in respectfully showcasing the beauty of his lineage, and above all, reopening the passage of virtuoso tango music repertoire to musicians. With that in mind, Estigarribia published his original compositions and arrangements of traditional pieces -Tangos de Concierto- and teaches regularly in Tango Festivals all over the World. He was also Jury of the prestigious "Orquesta Escuela de Tango" in Buenos Aires. Adrian Jost studied music in Switzerland. He won the gold medal of the ARMA musicians at age 11, studied Bayan with Fritz Tschannen and Stephane Chapuis. After a detour through science and completing a BachelorÕs of Science in Yverdon, he won the 1996 Landis&Gyr contest that sent him to Chicago where he completed a MasterÕs degree at Northwestern University and started the transition to the iconic bandone—n. He is the co-founder of Trio Garufa, a popular San Francisco based tango ensemble that enthralled audiences on the West Coast, in Argentina, Colombia, Canada and at various Tango festivals. His influences include Leopoldo Frederico, Salgan's Nuevo Quinteto Real, An’bal Troilo and Julio Pane. He has appeared as soloist with the San Jose Chamber Orchestra and performed alongside tango singer Mar’a VolontŽ, tango pianist PŽpŽ Motta and San Francisco's Jazz Bassist Marcus Shelby. His discography includes Tango en el Mate, La Segunda Tradici—n and El Rumor de tus tangos by Trio Garufa, Revirado of Tango Pacifico, a five-piece tango group based in Portland, Oregon, playing the music of Astor Piazzolla, and eXtraordinary Rendition with Rupa and the April Fishes.
