Lysandre was born from a Chilean father and a French mother. Thanks to the bandoneon he inherited from his grandfather, he began to be passionate about tango. He then created his first ensemble “Nonino Quartet”.

During the summer of 2010, Lysandre decided to stop his engineering studies in Grenoble INP and dedicate himself to music. He took lessons with renowned musicians as Víctor Villena, William Sabatier and Per Arne Glorvigen. Later, he joined the Tango Department of the Conservatory of Rotterdam (Codarts) in 2011, under the teaching of Gustavo Beytelmann, Víctor Villena and Leo Vervelde amongst others.

In parallel of his studies, he has been multiplying his professional experiences: the Silbando Orchestra, the Cuarteto El Compás, Roulotte Tango, Roberto Navarro, William Sabatier, the Silencio Orchestra directed by Roger Helou (with whom he recorded the last album “…todo, menos la canción”), Lalo Zanelli, Juan Carlos Carrasco “H”, etc…
