Branko Džinović expressed his interest for the bandoneón, the concertina-like tango instrument while discovering the music of Astor Piazzolla, the world-renowned Argentinean tango composer and bandoneonist. In 2017, Džinović spent several months in Buenos Aires studying the bandoneón with the local maestros, including Hugo Sattore (the Latin Grammy Award nominee), Ramiro Boero, and Santiago Segret. In addition, Džinović’s bandoneón studies were informed by attending live performances by some of the greatest bandoneón artists of today – Dino Salluzi and Victor Lavallén.

In addition to the standard tango repertoire, Branko Džinović aims to utilize his contemporary music skills and experience performing works originally written for the bandoneón by some of the most esteemed composers of the 20th and 21st century, such as Mauricio Kagel.
