22.05.2007: New CDs: Latin/ Tango, Gotan Project European Tour

1. New Latin CDs

Calle Real: Con Fuerza

Calle Real is a really special band: They play Cuban Timba music with different pop influences made in Sweden. The 10 musicians, none of them is Cuban by the way, already tested their talent and hot music in Cuba itself. In 2003, they received an invitation for the Benny Moré Festival in Cuba. There, the best Timba and Salsa bands meet and perform and international bands also participate. Let yourself be surprised by the quality of their music:

Here are two interesting tango CDs by the record label Galileo we would like to present to the readers of this newsletter:

La Camorra Tango: 12 Postales

The ensemble was mainly known for being an Astor Piazzolla cover band. Now, they are showing what their great teacher taught them, and they go one stept further. All the tracks of 12 Postales are compositions by La Camorra and they are very challenging for dancers.

This is what Daniel Piazzolla, Astor Piazzolla's son, said about Camorra:

"After listening to the CD by La Camorra, I understood that not everything is lost in our country. There is a generation of young people who have studied a lot and who are very competent. They give us hope and a lesson of how one does not have to give up... When I discoverd La Camorra I felt the same as when I first listened Gossis, Agri, Kicho, López Ruiz and to my own father."

Make up your own mind:

La Camorra Tango: 12 Postales

Paulina Fain playing the flute and Exequiel Mantega formed the Duo Fain-Mantega in 2004. Their repertoire contains tango classics in their own interpretations, new compositions and pieces by Astor Piazzolla. Their music is unique and special with an intimate character, which sometimes changes and which is full of virtuosity.

Both musicians developped the musical career in various tango ensembles and orchestras. With concerts in Argentina and the rest of the world, they were parts of "Tango Desatado", "Las Pibas", "Tangata Rea", as well as accompanists of singers like Sandra Luna, José Angel Trelles, and they played with trios like "Mantega-Mielgo-Condomí" and the "Quasimodo trio".

Also this CD is rather concertant and not really easy for the dancefloor, but maybe we are totally wrong with our opinion. So please find our for yourselves:
