1. Gotan Project DVD!
2. Travel: Tango holidays in Italy 2006
3. Salsa: New CD by Grupo Niche
4. Brazil: New Tropicalia CD

There have been so many news during the last days that we decided to publish a second newsletter after few days. This is it:


When Gotan Project released their CD with the same name in 2001, nobody had an idea what would follow and that a new genre, the TANGO-ELECTRONIC would originate from it. This DVD with live tracks from the Tour 2003 can be considered an almost historic event. There is film material from the concert in the FORUM, London, and also studio recordings, tour clips and videos on this time document. The format is NTSC (all regions) with a total recording time of 90min.


2. Travel: Tango in Italy 2006

We have made it! Our Tango programme for the year 2006 with our partners in Italy is ready. Also this year, most groups were booked out. So you should better book in time in order not to end up on the waiting list. The dance classes take place in a beautiful scenery in Umbria. The teachers are from different areas of the tango world.

3. Salsa: New CD by Grupo Niche - ALIVE

Finally a sign of life of the great Colombian heroes of Salsa. This is NOT – as the title might suggest – a LIVE CD, but a new studio recording! The leader of the band JAIRO VARELO has created top class songs again. When the vibraphone suddenly appears in the middle part of “Cocomania”, it becomes evident that Grupo Niche is back in top form and with a lot of enthusiasm.

4. Brazil: New Tropicalia CD

A musical – and also political – time document of vibrating Brazil is presented with this CD. At the end of the 60s a student movement supported by musicians like CAETANO VELOSO; GILBERTO GIL; TOM ZE came into life: TROPICALIA.
The peak time of this mixture between British Rock-Psychedelic music and Brazilian Bossa Nova ended in 1969, after only one year. Still, the movement has a great influence on contemporary pop music, even nowadays. The detailed booklet including photos and text documentation makes this CD a must-have for every listener interested in music.
