Born in Buenos Aires, Cantor Dr. Ramón Tasat learned Ladino, the language of the Sephardic people, at his grandmother’s knee; his style reflects the rich history and drama of this extraordinary culture. Trained in five different countries, he received a doctorate in voice performance from the University of Texas at Austin. Cantor Tasat has performed at the Kennedy Center and the Israeli Embassy, toured Europe with world-renowned Dr. Robert Shaw, and participated in international festivals on both sides of the Atlantic.
Emmanuel Trifilio was born in la Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied bandoneon, eventually joining Los Immigrantes. After winning the annual tango orchestra contest in Buenos Aires, he was invited to tour Chile with Maestro Tato Finocci. He performed for several years at the legendary Café Tortoni in Buenos Aires. In 2009 he came to the United States to perform in the Helen Hayes award-winning show, “Mummy in the Closet” at GALA Hispanic Theatre.
Defying all musical labels, Argentine guitarist, composer, and teacher Cristian Perez weaves together genres from throughout the world to reveal the universality of music. With a strong foundation in classical, jazz and South American music, Cristian crafts a singular voice rich in sensitivity and nuance that freely explores the possibilities of the art form.
