An international project, Trifilio Tango Trio presents virtuosic performances of original tango music. Led by Argentinian Emmanuel Trifilio (composition, bandoneon) and Devree Lewis (arrangements, cello), TTT celebrates the tango classics while creating new repertoire for today's audiences.
Formed in 2015, TTT has since produced two albums of original music, a full length music video, and a soundtrack for a short film which was nominated for best original score at Milan's 2016 MOFF Film Festival. They regularly perform with members of the National Symphony Orchestra and in 2017 directed the first youth tango orchestra program of Washington, D.C. with DCYOP.
A DCCAH grant winner in 2017, TTT presented free and bilingual concerts of tango music for immigrants and Hispanic/Latino residents of Washington, D.C.
Recent appearances include Havana, Cuba, Houston, Miami, Denver, San Francisco, New York, Richmond, and Baltimore. From their weekly shows in D.C.'s small venues to their formal concerts in Buenos Aires, they present an intimate experience from any stage.
