|New CD Release: NarcoTango
Announcing a very exciting CD release by Argentine musician Carlos Libedinsky. Conceived by a dancer for dancers, the visionary album NARCOTANGO is a cross between Osvaldo Pugliese and Massive Attack. It is by far the most brilliant hybrid of traditional tango and contemporary electronic music that has been produced to date. It is not only beautiful and entrancing to listen to, it is also inspiring for dancing, and therefore one of the most important tango CDs of this generation. Carlos writes about his work:
"NARCOTANGO is a deep embrace between Tango and the electronic music atmosphere of our time.
"At the hour when there are only a few couples left on the dancing floor, magic sneaks into the Milonga, and I watch people dancing and experimenting a new kind of Tango dance, when my body is exhausted from dancing for hours and I don't want the night to end, at that hour NARCOTANGO was born. It was then that I could imagine the music that I wanted to dance to, and to see others dance to. At that moment the narcotic power of tango takes over and confirms, once again, that I have entered a universe inside of me that is hard to leave, because like a drug, tango generates an incredible, sensual and powerful addiction."
