Saturday April 13th, 2019: Ney Melo & Carla Marano performed to live music by The Aces of Rhythm
The Aces of Rhythm are a tango orchestra led by Argentine-born bassist and composer Pablo Aslan. Living in the United States since 1980, Pablo is recognized internationally as one of the leading figures in traditional and contemporary tango. His extensive discography includes Piazzolla in Brooklyn (a jazz-tango tribute to Astor Piazzolla) and Tango Grill. The latter earned him nominations for a Latin Grammy Award (“Best Tango Album”) and a Grammy Award (“Best Latin Jazz Album”).
Aslan has also performed and recorded with many world-class artists, including Yo-Yo Ma, Shakira, Lalo Schifrin, Denyce Graves, Osvaldo Golijov, Pablo Ziegler, the New World Symphony, and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
His orchestra “The Aces of Rhythm” play in the dynamic, rhythmic style of the legendary orchestra leader Juan D’Arienzo.
Carla Marano started dancing tango in 1994 at La Viruta, the historic milonga in Buenos Aires. She is considered part of the generation of dancers who transformed Argentine Tango through the investigation of movement technique, communication language and musical interpretation.
