Latin Tuesdays are Back For The Summer

Join us Tuesdays for New York's best latin jazz!

Starting July 2, Latin Tuesdays return to The Django for a sizzling summer of sound. Join us for Tango, Brazilian, Salsa and more, every Tuesday nite starting at 7:30PM.


Highlights this summer include:


Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet

Latin Grammy winning Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet is a virtuoso group that elegantly brings the beauty and passion of the tango repertoire into the world of chamber music. Widely acknowledged as one of the most compelling tango ensembles today, the quartet walks in the giant footsteps of Astor Piazzolla, and continues to take this musical genre into new territories.


As a bassist, composer and arranger, Giraudo leads his own jazz and tango ensembles and has been hailed by critics as one of the most creative and daring bandleaders on the scene today. His compositions combine his love of classical forms, Argentine tango and folk music, and the spontaneity of jazz improvisation. The band, which boasts some of New York’s finest musicians, has performed regularly at the Django to capacity crowds. Giraudo has also played bass on dozens of recordings for the world’s leading labels including Sony, Warner, Nonesuch, Naxos and Harmonia Mundi, as well as for independent projects, and on movies including Oliver Stone’s ‘Wall Street II’. He is also the principal bassist of the Música de Cámara String Orchestra.





Enchanting vocalist Jamile captivates audiences with her unique phrasing and heartfelt tone. When Jamile brings her Brazilian brand of song stylings to the Django stage, audiences delight. Her first album entitled ‘If You Could See Me Now’ in 2019 was called “sharp and confident” (All About Jazz), and featured some of New York’s finest musicians. Originally from Brazil, she has been a professional singer since her youth and was a featured singer in the musical ‘Eu Sou Maria (Nativitaten)’, the largest outdoor Christmas project in the world, for an audience of 500,000 people throughout the season.


Jamile regularly performs with many of NYC’s current jazz luminaries such as Miki Yamanaka, Benny Benack III, Yotam Silberstein, to name but a few. Influenced by the vocal jazz and blues tradition, and rooted in the Brazilian rhythms, she impresses listeners with her vocal virtuosity and shines on any style or genre she sings.



People Of Earth

People of Earth is a global music collective set on blurring the barriers between the great art forms of the terrestrial sphere, creating an explosive blend of the music of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Brazil and beyond. Bring your dancing shoes – you don’t want to be the last one left sitting down at one of their performances.


Formed in 2017, the band has a frontline of three singers, backed by four horns, three percussionists, two keyboards, and electric bass.  The band plays original music that blends influences from Cuban Timba and Rumba, Puerto Rican bomba and plena, Haitian Kompa, Brazilian MPB, and American soul, RnB, and hip hop, with songs in Spanish, English, Portuguese, and Kreyole.


People of Earth’s debut self-titled album was released in May of 2023 on the Truth and Revolution Records label, and features a guest appearance from acclaimed Brazilian singer Marcos Costa.  The album’s nine tracks include seven original compositions by members of the group along with a cover of Djavan’s Te Devoro and Leonard Bernstein’s Mambo.


In addition to being a powerhouse performing group, People of Earth is devoted to education, and its members with veteran teaching artists who have led workshops at such venues as The Kimmel Center, Carnegie Hall, Philadelphia Orchestra, Detroit Symphony and many more. The band has presented children’s concerts for The Mann Center, 92nd Street Y, and Afro Latin Jazz Alliance. The members of People on Earth are committed to using music as a vehicle for social change, and through sharing their passion for warm blooded groove music hope to facilitate dialogue, create cultural connections, and spread joy ultimately making the world a better place.
