Enticing. Powerful. Captivating. The only tango duo in Chicago, Rojo Tango led by Guillermo Paolisso invites audiences on a journey to discover the roots of tango, milonga, candombe and other key musical styles from the Río de la Plata region in South America. The guitar and violin duo also bring in touches of Bossa Nova, Gypsy Jazz, and World Music. Guillermo Paolisso is an Argentine guitarist based in Chicago, noted by the American Guild of Musical Artists as an important musician representing Argentine musical culture in the US. Born and raised in Japan, violinist Emi Tanabe blends classical orchestral experience with stage presence and pop glam for an entertaining and impressive performance.
