Conscious of the roots of tango music, echoing the sad melodies of the European immigrant and the furious rhythms of the Indigenous and African slave populations of late 18th century in Argentina and Uruguay, this ensemble was born to build cultural bridges between urban sophistication and tribal power, between the unresolved past and the unknown future, between South America and Australia.
With a repertoire of original/traditional tangos, and folk music from Argentina and Uruguay interpreted on piano Elian Sellanes, voice Elena Zalez, accompanied by the melancholic sound of the chromatic harmonica of Chis Maunders, and Paulo Guiterrez (one of the best representatives of Uruguayan culture) setting the vibrant rhythm in tambor followed by Callum Harber in electric bass.
The whole group enchants its audience with a powerful bilingual performance loaded with music, dance, stories, rhythms, and emotions inherited from their different cultures. / Photo: Emerald MacGill at @Melbourneminute.
