2. Latin News from the label Envidia

Tirso Duarte, Colon 264, Orestes Valido, Pan con Chocolate: The label Envidia, located in Spain, has released interesting productions for many years now, especially from Cuba. The CD "Fin del Juego" by Tirso Duarte, for example, is an excellent salsa/Timba production:

But the sampler "Academia de Baile Latino" is also highly recommendable. It is a colourful mix of Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha Cha, Mambo, Merengue and Son. Thus, the 3 CD-Box is never boring and it is entertaining to listen to it (and to dance) from the beginning to the end.

3. CD by Cuarteto Rotterdam: Yunta de Oro

There are not only interesting Tango recordings from Argentina. Especially the last years have presented us with a lot of exciting material from Europe. One of these CDs is “Yunta de Oro” by Cuarteto Rotterdam, which we would like to point out today:

Cuarteto Rotterdam: Yunta de Oro

The press information gives some valuable details about the band and the recording:

"Cuarteto Rotterdam is Tango - full of passion, esprit and power. The quartet was founded in 2004 and the name derives from the meeting point of the four musicians, who studied Tango at the "Rotterdam Academy for World Music" in the Netherlands.
The advantage of the small orchestra is their experience, creativity and phantasy, which origins from the diverse musical backgrounds of the German-English-Dutch quartet.
The classic formation of the quartet with bandoneón, viola, piano and double-bass creates a sound experience, which moves between tradition and modernity.
With playful ease and perfectly tuned they manage to combine different eras of Tango in order to take us on a journey to the beginnings of Tango, to the Golden Age of the 1940s, to Astor Piazzollas Tango Nuevo and to contemporary Argentinian and European compositions. Their enormous versatility enthuses the concert audience as well as the dancers."
