Gems from Cuba on CD

Issac Delgado, Tirso Duarte, Cesar "Pupy" Pedroso: It is well known, that many exceptionary artists who combine their musical heritage with contemporary tendencies are from Cuba. Today, we would like to point out three musical gems proving our point:

El "Chévere de la Salsa" is back with his second album after moving to Miami. This is a first class album: music, lyrics, arrangements and of course Delgado's characteristic voice - a great piece of work:

Issac Delgado: Así Soy

Tirso Duarte is one of the most prominent Cuban artists at the moment. He became popular with his mix of salsa and timba. Now he surprises his fans with a reggaeton album. He combines the sometimes monotonous reggaeton rhythm with great singing and a timba touch. Reggaetón a lo Cubano. Here are the audio samples:

Tirso Duarte: Para Que Nada Te Pueda Pasar

You haven't danced for a long time. You are fed up with another grey November. Don't become desperate! There is a remedy for you: The CD of the former member of Los Van Van, César "Pupy" Pedroso, is the perfect material for getting rid of dullness. Would you like to try it? There you go:

Néstor Marconi: Tiempo Esperado

The following CD is part of the series "Guitarras del mundo". The 23 titles like "Silbando", "Por una cabeza" or "Volver" are pure guitar arrangements played by Aníbal Arias. This gives the album a very special and intimate magic:

Aníbal Arias: Una Guitarra Para Gardel

And here is a collaboration of two famous musicians: Gustavo Beytelmann playing the piano and César Angeleri playing the guitar. Pablo Agri (violin), the singer Néstor Basurto and the percussionist Rodolfo Sánchez. The first title already demonstrates the uniqueness. "La Puñalada" has never been heard like this.

Tango-discovery: Urbango from Belgium

Only a few days after after the release in Brussels, we can offer the new CD by Urbango: "Aires De Dos Orillas". And this CD is really worth it. It is an excellent mixture of own compositions and arrangements, in parts very rhythmical and almost percussive, wonderful to dance and to listen to.

The Urbango group was founded in 2005 by Eduardo Baró, an Argentinian musician and composer living since many years in Brussels. He selected various musicians who, each, have a large affinity and experience with Argentinian music. Urbango has a varying geometry based on bandoneon, piano, percussion and guitar/voice/sax. Its repertoire travels through the Argentinian and Uruguay music from the traditional tango till the tango nuevo by Astor Piazzolla crossing the rythms typical of the folk music (chacarera, candombe).

Both productions are now available from Danza y Movimiento:

The latest album (release 17/10/2008)
Urbango: Aires De Dos Orillas

Electrotango - Tangolectron

TANGOLECTRÓN is the latest production by the musician, composer and sound puzzler Nils Imhorst. Traditional tango and electronic music merge on this album, which oscillates between melancholy and nonchalance. The 14 tracks, the majority his own compositions, are arranged affectionately. At the same time, he does without the widespread minimalism. Consciously, Imhorst relies on meticulous arrangements, which thoroughly savour the emotional world of the titles.
Electronic drumbeats and sounds meet the traditional tango facets, represented by acoustic instruments like bandoneón, violin, guitar, piano, double bass and canto. Imhorst invited his favourite musicians for this project to the studio. Thus, Henrik Albrecht (award for audiobook in 2007) can be heard playing the bandoneón. The Spanish singer Minerva Díaz Pérez, at the moment touring Europe successfully with her band N.O.A.H., sings three titles. Apart from them the CD is instrumental. TANGOLECTRÓN is an album, which invites to dancing or to listening, depending on the mood. Or to both at the same time.

Duo Aguirre-Rocco: Sonata Tanguera

The first album by the duo Aguirre-Rocco published in Europe combines two musical stylistic genres deeply rooted in Argentinian culture - the European classic and the tango. The musicians are the pianist and composer Pablo Aguirre and the transverse flute player Luis Rocco.

The Tango-Sonate evolved in 2001 in a time of political crisis in Argentinian and a brusque change in the life of Pablo Aguirre. While searching for a new musical identity, a valuable contribution for modern chamber music developed, a real novelty in the tradition of the classical sonata.

The tango by Astor Piazzolla (Tango Neuvo) also also influenced the Tango-Sonate - in this case in a chamber music interpretation.
