Roman Gomez started off his professional career in Argentina where he worked together with singers and producers while gaining experience in recording studios. He then moved to Rome where he taught music and collaborated with important artists including the jazz composer Daniele Sepe, the singers Lucio Dalla, Edοardo de Angelis, Lisa, Tony Esposito, as well as the prestigious Accademia di Santa Cecilia. For the last ten years he is based in Athens, Greece, where he managed to become one of the most important musicians in the Tango and Latin music scene.
Roman’s music embraces elements from Argentinian music and Latin American folklore, while being enhanced by the flavors of Brazilian music and stylistic/improvisational elements of jazz. Through his improvisations and compositions he creates in a unique way an amalgamation of tango music and modern classical music.
Apart from his career as a soloist, composer, and arranger, Roman teaches in Athens and Rome and gives regular masterclasses on tango music in Italy, Switzerland and Germany.
