Brooklyn-based Argentine musician and producer Pablo Aslan brings his new concept to Bar Lunatico for an evening of Brazilian-tinged tango. With renowned world music mavens Frank London, Rob Curto and Richie Barshay, Mash-ish explores the musical hybrids at the meeting of cultures, creating dance music for embracing bodies.

Pablo is best known for his tango and jazz fusion band Avantango, and his Latin Grammy nominated albums on the Zoho and Soundbrush labels. A pioneer in the tango revival, he has also branched out into klezmer, latin jazz, and crossover classical music projects, with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Shakira, Lalo Schifrin, Paquito D’Rivera, Ethan Iverson, and Pablo Ziegler among many others.

“Bassist Pablo Aslan has long been in the forefront of forging an alliance between jazz and the tango. His approach has been artful, keeping the body of the tango intact while letting jazz take the music into new pastures.” — All About Jazz

“We’re in a golden age of jazz-tango fusion, and bassist Pablo Aslan is one of the main reasons. (…) His pulsing lines are the heartbeat of a new music.” — Jazziz
