Libertango 5     was founded in Sicily (Italy) in 1993 by five Sicilian musicians:

- Francesco Calì (accordion, piano and arrangements)
- Gino De Vita (guitar)
- Marcello Leanza (flute and saxes)
- Giovanni Arena (bass)
- Ruggero Rotolo (drums)


Francesco wished to use the accordion in a context out of the ordinary, as the accordion at that time was still mainly heard on the folkloristic scene.

The so-called Nuevo Tango and the Brazilian tradition were the initial references for the band that over the years has done a wider musical research, exploring sounds and cultural influences from all over the world.
