A Beautiful Live Show

Whether solo or with his Tango Trio of two guitars and percussion, Guillermo Paolisso captivates audiences and takes them on a journey to discover the roots of tango, milonga, candombe and other key musical styles from Argentina.

Tango: A Musical Melting Pot

Tango is the soul of Buenos Aires. A multidimensional art form, tango encompasses music, dance, poetry and a lifestyle. It originated from a mosaic of cultures at the end of the 19th century including European polkas and waltzes, the Cuban Habanera, and African candombe and canyengue. Guillermo Paolisso is bringing back the roots of tango to the US with a modern sound.
