SEXTETO STAZO MAYOR with Luis Stazo
Born in Buenos Aires , he started to play the Bandoneón with yet 7 years. At the age of 11 he already played in child orchestras. Until the foundation of the Sexteto Mayor in `73 , with which he registered more than 20 CD´s, he played and accompanied famous ones of the tango like Osmar Maderna, Angel Vargas, Juan Carlos, Cobián, Jorge A. Fernández, Lucio Demare, Argentino Galván, Alberto Morán And the unforgettable Roberto Goyeneche, “el Polaco“.
As an arranger he wrote only for the Sexteto Mayor more than a 150 arrangements. In his long carrier of now more than 60 years he played on all stages of the world.
