Born in Buenos Aires in the sixties, and raised in the very porteño neighborhood of Almagro, Gustavo Rember used to listen to tangos with his father when he was a child.
Despite having ventured into other genres such as rock, and having graduated as an engineer and teacher, his interest in tango never stopped, especially the part that is dance.
The list of tango dance teachers with whom he studied is endless. Over time he began to perform, mainly with Elina Ruiz and Marina Kenny, in places such as La Viruta, Salón Canning, Milonga Animal, Milonga La Pipetuá, DNI Práctica, and others. He has also found time for teaching tango, in several spaces in Argentina and, also, abroad.
Since March 2020, he has been part of the Virtual Tango Festival for Philadelphia Argentine Tango School, and took part in virtual classes, radio appearances, podcasts, and the streaming show Tango en la Terraza.
