I can provide the "tango feel" for your song, movie, commercial, documentary or anything you need to sound tanguero. Even if you want an exotic, vintage, romantic or latin-american sound, tango will do the work. Guitarist and arranger from Buenos Aires, Argentina, specialized in Tango. More than 10 years of experience as a professional musician.
My main activity is developed as a member of the tango groups "La Runfla" and "El Enganche", both as a guitarist and arranger of contemporary and classic tangos. I made recordings with both groups and national and international tours. I also play bandoneon in an amateur fashion (maybe it also fits your project!).
I obtained my degree in Chamber Music at the Astor Piazzolla Conservatory (CSMCBA). Currently writing my thesis for the National Arts University (UNA), focused on the role of the guitar in tango orchestras. I recently won a scholarship from the National Arts Fund (FNA) to further my studies as an arranger.
Here's a Spotify Playlist with my recordings (you'll also find some things from my rock phase).

Interview with Lucas Peverelli
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: La runfla is my main project. We are three guitars and a female singer; trying to sound new and refreshing in such a traditional formation is quite a challenge, but I think we accomplished that. We tend to focus on details and subtleness; everything is on the arrangements and the search of tone. Besides the recording studio, our music took us on tour to different countries such as Germany, The Netherlands, France and Belgium, where we were wormly received.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently I'm working on orchestral arrangements that include guitars as a whole section, and not only as a soloist.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like to find creative solutions to musical problems. Getting in front of new music and new composers is like a fresh start, so you have to be open to new ideas and new outcomes.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out as a rock guitarist, but then took a turn to classical music, specially chamber music since I love to play with others. While finishing my degree in chamber music I started to study tango and fell inlove with it. Diego Kvitko was my guitar mentor and then I studied harmony with Diego Schissi.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I try to focus on tone and articulation while playing. Tango guitar is about passion, sometimes rythmic and fast passages are needed, but also deep and melodic moments are important. I use to alternate between fingers and pick to get the correct tone for the song. Nylon guitar is all about the subtleness of tone.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Even though I specialize in Tango, I've worked with Rock groups and with Classical ensambles.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Music is first. I'm not a big fan of being the only one in the spotlight. I think magic happens when everybody is doing what's best for the song, even when you're playing the "small" part.
