Artist Profiles: Rodolfo Mederos

Rodolfo Mederos

Argentine bandoneon player, composer and arranger Rodolfo Mederos was born March 25, 1940 in Río de la Plata.

As a composer, Rodolfo Mederos covers a wide spectrum, from traditional tango to symphonic pieces for different instrumental groups. As a performer, he expresses deep-felt musicality. In the 1970s Mederos was one of the few tango musicians who collaborated with progressive rock musicians. Todo Hoy is an example of this kind of work.

Mederos is also a teacher and writer of both bandoneon-related matters as well as tango composition and orchestration.

He lived in Cuba and France and then returned to Argentina, where he founded the influential Generación Cero.

Rodolfo Mederos has collaborated with numerous Argentine artists as well as flamenco vocalists Miguel Poveda and Enrique Morente.
