Subtle blending of electronics, the traditional instruments for creating a tango tempo (eg. bandoneon - related to the accordian - violin and piano) and the creamy, passionate voice of Christina Vilallonga works brilliantly. You will not be disappointed!
From the moment that the first track went down I knew that I had to own it. Lo and behold a few weeks later I am now the proud owner of this exquisite "one of the best of 2001" CD. I didn't think that you could revitalise tango music in this way. It is not just that it is the intricate beats and the various other influences thrown in to make this something every serious collector SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR COLLECTION!!
BUY IT YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED......
It's slinky, seductive and very addictive.
And provocative. The opening track "Queremos paz" (We want peace) samples Che Guevara's 1964 address to the UN General Assembly and "El Capitalismo Foraneo" (Foreign Capitalism) echoes with the ghostly presence of Evita Peron. There are cool reworks of Zappa's piece "Chunga's Revenge" and Gato Barbieri's theme for the movie "Last Tango in Paris".
It's lounge, it's mellow, it's sexy and it has just the right edge of sweet Argentinean sadness.
