Acclaimed composer and performer Máximo Pujol is bringing his tango trio direct from Buenos Aires to Australia for the first time ever – and his first stop is Melbourne this weekend!!
Having honed his skills playing milongas and tangos in the clubs of Buenos Aires, Pujol’s vibrant and melodically rich music is founded on these styles, and makes full use of the expressive powers of the guitar in dialogue with stellar bandoneonista Eleonora Ferreyra and double bass player Daniel Falasca.
If you like a bit of Latin flair then head along to Melba Hall at Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, Royal Parade this Saturday 12th July at 7:30m. You’ll be in for a serious (and very rare) treat. I promise!

Check out the Maximo Pujol Trio in action……
The Maximo Pujol Trio, featuring the Argentine tango maestro, guitarist and composer, Maximo Diego Pujol, bandoneónista Eleonora Ferreyra and double bass player Daniel Falascaare, are flying to Australia from Buenos Aires for the first time! Whoop! The stellar trio will be playing an evening of tango for one night only in Melbourne in July. This is truly an event not to be missed!
Máximo Diego Pujol honed his skills as a performer by playing tango and milongas at Buenos Aires night clubs, both as a soloist and as an accompanist. He also played in a number of duos, trios and quartets, immersing himself fully in every aspect of tango music. His experiences were further enriched by performing at the same shows as well-known tango stars such as José Colángelo, Héctor Stamponi, Horacio Ferrer, Jorge Sobral, Ruben Juárez, Mariquela Monti, Néstor Marconi, and Roberto Goyeneche. At the same time, he studies and analyses the great traditional tango compositors like Juan Carlos Cobián, Osvaldo Pugliese, Julián Plaza, Horacio Salgán and vanguard tango composers like Astor Piazzolla.
