Guillermo Vaisman studied the accordion from an early age. After that, Guillermo lived with his parents in Buenos Aires, where he studied music formally, but he was hooked on tango for life after hearing the singers at the Bar “El Chino” in Pompeya.
Apart from appearing in theaters and concert halls in Argentina and various European and Asian countries, his happiest moments were playing sidewalk serenades and accompanying singers in the Villa Urquiza, Flores and Boedo neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.

Guillermo Vaisman has accompanied various singers in Buenos Aires (e.g. Luis Cardei, Jorge Dobalo). In New York, where he lives, he frequently works with the master bandoneón player Tito Castro. He plays tangos throughout the New York area, and is a regular guest at the Summer Tango Festival in Central Park in New York City.
His repertoire specializes in tangos from the 30s and 40s, but also features milongas and ‘valsecitos criollos’.
