Daniel Binelli

Daniel Binelli was born in Quilmes and since age nine when his father bought a bandoneon for him he has started a career full of effort which allowed him to reach the place that Fate had in store for him.

Astoria Tango Orchestra

Founded by actor-singer and producer Héctor Pablo Pereyra, the Astoria Tango Orchestra is an ten-member group that holds the tradition of the big Tango bands from Buenos Aires during Tango’s golden era (1940’s).

In Argentina, the term orquesta típica is associated with tango music. The orquesta típica usually comprises a string section (of violins, viola, and cello), a bandoneón section (of 2 or more bandoneons), and a rhythm section (of piano and double bass). An orquesta típica is an expanded version of a sexteto tipico, which includes 2 bandoneons, 2 violins, double bass and piano.
