Julio Pane was born in Buenos Aires in 1947. Son and nephew of bandoneon players, he studied with Ahumada, one of the greatest bandoneon players of all time.

He was a member of the orchestras of Salgán, Francini, Pontier, Stampone, Caló, Basso, Federico, Piazzolla's Sextet and other groups.

Since 1983 he has been the solo bandoneón of the Buenos Aires Tango Orchestra. Pane and Raúl Garello both performed as soloists with the Toulouse and Dresden Symphonies, the House Orchestra of the Colón Theater, the National Symphony of Argentina, Córdoba, and, with Horacio Salgán on piano, the Mendoza Symphony.

Leading his “Julio Pane Trio” (together with N. Ledesma and E. Guerra) he recorded the CD “A Las Orquestas,” presented in Rome (2000), Paris, Madrid, Lisbon, Holland and Belgium and the Grec Festival of Barcelona (2001) and in the Colón Theater (2002).  He was nominated for the Clarín prizes in 2002, 2003 and 2004.  He recorded the CD “Un Placer” with guitarist Juanjo Domínguez, which was nominated for the Gardel prize in 2002.  He performed solo in Madrid and Porto Alegre (2003) and as the invited director of Argentine groups in Paris (2003) and Venice (2004).  He is a member of the Selección Nacional de Tango (“National Tango Team” orchestra) together with Leopoldo Federico, Rodolfo Mederos, Osvaldo Piro, Ernesto Baffa, Walter Ríos and other important masters.

Since 2003 he has been a member of the Grand Jury for the Clarín Prizes.  Teacher of great bandoneon players who travel from all over the world in order to take classes with him, he is a true genius of improvisation, admired by musicians and tango lovers.  He was renowned for his intimate performance series at the Bar Miramar, in the San Cristóbal neighborhood, just steps from his home.
