Pablo Aslan

Argentine-born bassist and composer Pablo Aslan is a leading figure in the tango revival. In addition to directing Avantango, he is a founder and co-director (with Latin Grammy nominee Raul Jaurena) of New York-Buenos Aires Connection and the acclaimed NewYork Tango Trio.

He is a member of the Pablo Ziegler’s Quintet for New Tango, and has toured US and Japan with Yo-Yo Ma.

Pablo has performed and recorded with Grammy Award Winner Shakira, Grammy winner and Academy Award nominee Jorge Calandrelli, Latin Grammy nominee pianist Adrian Iaies, Latin Grammy winner Carlos Franzetti, Lalo Shiffrin, Joe Lovano, Gary Burton, Paquito D’Rivera, as well as the New World Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and David Krakauer’s Klezmer Madness, among many others.
