Binelli, Daniel; da Silva, Pedro H.
In their new release Tango Fado Duo, guitarist Pedro H. da Silva and bandoneonist Daniel Binelli explore the relationship between the sensuality of Argentine tango and the passion of Portuguese fado, interweaving the traditional sounds of their respective instruments. Although tango and fado originate from two distant countries and differ in rhythm and instrumentation, they are closely related in harmony, melody, and lyrical themes. Internationally renowned composer, arranger and master of the bandoneon, Argentine musician Daniel Binelli tours extensively in concert and recital. Binelli is also widely acclaimed as the foremost exponent of the music of Astor Piazzolla. Binelli is the Musical Director of the Tango Metropolis Company, which was featured in the PBS documentary Tango: The Spirit of Argentina and in a BBC documentary on Astor Piazzolla’s life. Pedro H. da Silva is an award-winning composer, guitarist, educator, and multi-instrumentalist whose umerous accolades include the 2015 ASCAP Plus Award. A professor of composition and classical guitar at New York University, da Silva is the Music Director of the Manhattan Camerata, which he co-founded with his wife, the composer and pianist Lucía Caruso.
