The Argentine musician and guitarist Camilo Córdoba, in collaboration with outstanding figures of Argentine tango, presents his new project, “Pentafónico.” This five-piece ensemble, meticulously crafted with some of the best talents in tango, represents a unique fusion of tradition and avant-garde in the contemporary music scene.

With an impressive career spanning multiple continents and renowned festivals, Córdoba introduces this new group, promising to take the audience on a unique musical journey. They will explore the boundaries of tango, blending it with elements of other Latin American musical styles, jazz, and more.

PENTAFONICO will debut this project with a new album, “Retratos,” produced by Camilo Córdoba, set to be released in July 2024. Featuring their own arrangements of classic works by Pugliese, Rovira, Piazzolla, and others, this new repertoire seeks to reinterpret tango music with a contemporary perspective, highlighting the evolution of the genre over time.

What’s this project about?

At the heart of this visionary project is the idea of building an authentic cultural bridge, essential for the transmission and perpetuation of the tango genre.

This cycle will become the focal point for the arrival of great tango masters and artists in Belgium and Europe, leading to a series of concerts throughout the 2025-2026 season.

The vision is clear: to unite contemporary musicians from Buenos Aires with those from Belgium and Europe in a single project, creating a unique experience that will attract both tango enthusiasts and music lovers in general.



The repertoire of this new album ‘Retratos’ features Camilo Córdoba’s own arrangements of works by Pugliese, Rovira, Piazzolla, among others. This new repertoire reinterprets the music from the period when the first significant changes in tango occurred, namely, the late 1940s and early 1950s.

In this music, the guitar is once again recognized as an essential instrument for tango ensembles, a role that had been relegated in such instrumental formations since the 1920s, and it draws a line to the current and contemporary repertoire.

This repertoire highlights the evolution of the genre and combines the musical influence of the 1950s with today’s tango.
