Everybody’s heard Argentine Tango, but very little is known about Argentina’s - and South
America’s - “other music”. Guillermo’s repertoire combines Amerindian folkloric rhythms such as
chacarera and huayno from Argentina, candombe from Uruguay, lando from Afro-Peru and
Brazilian samba and baiao with elements of jazz improvisation.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Guillermo is a versatile vocalist, guitarist and composer. He
leads Rioplatenses, a band featuring some of UK’s top Latin musicians. They appear regularly
across the UK, performing Guillermo’s originals and their distinctive take on traditional South
American folklore. Some of their recent performance highlights are WOMAD festival 2004, BBC
World On Your Street, London Diaspora Music Village Festival, South Bank Festival.
Guillermo moved to England in 2000 after more than 10 years performing and teaching in Buenos
Aires, where he grew his reputation as a jazz and Latin vocalist. Based in London, he’s now the
singer with outstanding sax player Gilad Atzmon’s Orient House Ensemble, winner of the BBC
Jazz awards. Guillermo has recorded in their latest album, Musik, hailed “Best Jazz album of the

Guillermo didn't find tango, tango found him after he moved to Europe. He has now become one
of the leading voices of tango in the UK, working regularly with Los Mareados tango band and
Danish trio Copenaires. Off stage Guillermo is committed to his work as a vocal coach and
workshop leader. In 2005 he was invited as guest voice tutor to join the faculty of the Global
